The local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals recently received a new van for transporting supplies and equipment throughout the region.

The Mohawk Valley Health System announced Thursday that the Midstate Regional Council and Steet-Ponte Toyota recently provided the support for the new van, which is now being used by Emergency Medical Services. It was given to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals at the St. Luke's Campus of MVHS.

EMS will use the van to transport supplies and training equipment to different outreach and training/education programs in Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties, according to MVHS. Some of those programs include Project Kids Care, weekly opiate overdose training, and education and community outreach.

“The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals have always been important to me and my family, since both my brother and I were born prematurely,” said Carly Steet-Mathias in a news release. “But this year, donating to help the EMS van hit even closer to home. Growing up in the automotive industry, I've seen firsthand how important reliable transportation is, especially when it comes to medical services.”

Steet-Mathias says her husband is a former EMT and current volunteer firefighter, so it “means the world” to them to be able to provide the local hospital with a vehicle to support life-saving medical equipment for fire departments and EMS services.
