Ambulance (New Cairo Only):

AUC has acquired its own on-site fully equipped ambulance for AUC New Cairo. The clinic physicians and nurses on campus have been trained on how to utilize and operate all the imported emergency equipment including a life support system, oxygen unit, cardiac monitors, and a spinal immobilization and transport device.

The AUC ambulance service is intended for the transport of critical cases on the New Cairo campus only. If any member of the AUC community faces an emergency off campus, he or she should contact the nearest hospital or public ambulance (by dialing 123). In cases where an off-campus emergency is directly reported to the AUC medical services office, the aforementioned procedure will still be followed. The Office of Medical Services will follow up on all reported emergency cases to ensure that they are receiving proper healthcare.
