Based at the Etihad Airways Medical Centre in Etihad Plaza the high-tech ambulance provides a 24/7 emergency medical service for the airline's employees in the capital city. Employees can now dial a special emergency number to call the ambulance.

Dr. Nadia Bastaki Etihad Airways' VP of medical services said: 'In a medical emergency we recognize the importance of providing a rapid response. Treatment starts as soon as the patient is onboard the ambulance and continues on the journey to the hospital.

Employee medical services have been offered since 2004 with the Etihad Airways Medical Centre opening in 2010. Staffed by nearly 30 medical experts including 10 doctors the center provides medical services for the airline's Abu Dhabi-based 13800 employees.

Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Ameri chairman of the board of National Ambulance said: 'This partnership highlights the ambition of both organizations to provide Etihad Airways' employees with the best pre-hospital care.'
