Are you an organization struggling to manage multiple vehicles to transport patients in wheelchairs, ambulatory patients, and those needing stretcher transport? The cost and hassle of maintaining three different vehicles can be overwhelming. Not to mention, coordinating logistics for each transportation type can become a scheduling nightmare. You’re probably thinking, “There has to be a better way to handle this.” 

We hear you, and we get it. At AVAN Mobility, we understand the challenges you face.

After many years of partnering with customers, we have seen the need for a vehicle that can do more than just one job. Our commitment stretches beyond just manufacturing; it’s about making a real impact on people’s lives. Every vehicle we create reflects our dedication to innovation, reliability, and quality. 

In this article, you’ll learn about the P4 3-in-1 Van, a groundbreaking solution for wheelchair, ambulatory, and stretcher transport. This vehicle is designed to simplify your organization’s transportation needs, saving you time and money while ensuring your patients receive the best care. Let’s dive into how the P4 3-in-1 Van can transform your operations.


What can the P4 3-in-1 Van do?

Transportation barriers are huge in the U.S., with 5% of adults missing out on healthcare simply due to transportation barriers. 

The P4 3-in-1 Van is an innovative new vehicle designed to help your organization transport patients with different levels of mobility. It can handle wheelchair transportation, ambulatory transportation (for patients who can walk but need assistance), and stretcher transportation. Let’s look closer to see why this van is so special.

The regular P4 Van is great for wheelchair and ambulatory transportation. But with the addition of special stretcher mounts, it becomes the P4 3-in-1 Van. The van can be used for:

  • Ambulatory transportation: For patients who can walk but may still need a bit of extra help. 


  • Wheelchair transportation: Safe and secure transport for individuals in wheelchairs, with easy loading and unloading.


  • Stretcher transportation: The added stretcher mounts allow for the secure and comfortable transport of patients who need to lie flat during the trip.


This versatility means you no longer need two separate vehicles to cover these transportation needs. The P4 3-in-1 Van streamlines your fleet, making it more cost-effective and easier to manage. 


Why choose the P4 3-in-1 Van?



Think about the convenience of having one vehicle that can adapt to various patient needs. The P4 3-in-1 Van’s design ensures that you’re always ready, no matter the type of patient transport required. It’s built with the flexibility to switch between modes quickly, reducing downtime and improving service efficiency.

Easier logistics: With the P4 3-in-1 Van, managing your transportation logistics becomes much simpler. You don’t have to worry about switching between different vehicles for different patient needs. 

For example, if you have just finished a stretcher transport and receive a call from a client for wheelchair transport, you can use the same van without any hassle. This saves time and makes your operations run more smoothly.

Cost-effective: Using one van for many purposes means spending less on maintenance and insurance. This helps your organization save money and use resources better.

Staff training: Training your staff on one versatile vehicle is simpler than training them on multiple vehicles. This means your team can quickly learn how to use the P4 3-in-1 Van, making your operations more efficient.

Increased availability: With one vehicle that can do it all, your organization can respond to more calls without worrying about having the right vehicle available. This increases your ability to serve more clients quickly.

Space efficiency: Instead of parking multiple vehicles, you only need space for one. This saves on parking costs and makes managing your fleet easier.
