Medical issues can arise unexpectedly, even with people who are in relatively good health. Many such illnesses can be treated in an outpatient medical facility. But there are a number of health conditions that require immediate medical assistance. The only correct decision in such cases is to call an ambulance. The first responders at GMS Hospital's ambulance service provide round-the-clock assistance in the event of any medical emergency.
The ambulance service at GMS has many advantages over the services at government healthcare facilities:
Ambulance services at GMS Hospital is your guarantee of health protection in the event of a sudden illness or injury. We provide assistance to children and adults, including traumatic obstetrics, pediatrics, intensive care, etc. If the call concerns a child, the ambulance team will include a pediatrician; if the patient is a pregnant woman, a special obstetrics team will be sent.
All the ambulances are outfitted with the necessary equipment and a full range of medications that could be needed for administering first aid to patients of all ages, including very young infants. We are particularly attentive to the needs of children and pregnant women. Emergency calls are made regarding pregnant women or women in labor for a number of conditions:
In any unforeseen or emergency situation, you can be absolutely assured that the ambulance team from GMS Clinics will arrive as soon as possible (on average, within 25 minutes); they will administer comprehensive medical care and quickly transport the patient to the desired clinic or maternity hospital. The emergency obstetrics team is equipped with everything necessary in case they have to deliver a baby on the way.
Children's illnesses differ from those of adults, and only a doctor with specialized training can quickly assess the medical condition of a young patient and render professional assistance. This is why is it very important that a pediatric team be sent with the ambulance when the call concerns a child.
In addition, the GMS Hospital ambulance service performs the following services:
We work round the clock, seven days a week. If you need an ambulance, call the operator and provide detailed information on the injured or sick person's condition, and give the exact address or location. On the basis of this information, an experienced dispatcher will send a specialized team of medical professionals with the proper skills to handle the situation.
You should call an ambulance in the event of the following:
Our specialists have many years of experience working in emergency situations.
Ambulance specialists carry out vital diagnostic tests such as:
On arrival, our doctors will quickly assess the situation, conduct quick diagnostic procedures and administer the necessary medical care (treat and dress wounds and burns, give injections, administer IV, etc.). If necessary they will recommend hospitalization.
In some cases, outpatient treatment is not a viable option. If the patient’s condition is serious, GMS ambulance specialists will arrange for hospitalization either at GMS Hospital or at another medical facility in Moscow, where the patient will receive the necessary further assistance.
Rehabilitation is an integral part of most medical treatments, and is often the determining factor for a successful medical outcome. At GMS Hospital our doctors use a wide range of modern rehabilitation therapies, ensuring a rapid recovery for our patients. Rehabilitation programs are designed on an individual basis, and consist of a combination of rest and physical exercise. To find out more about the capabilities of our ambulance service, call the GMS clinic.

I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.
I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
