The Hyundai Grand Starex Cargo Can Now Be Transformed Into A DOH Type-1 Ambulance


Hyundai Asia Resources has transformed its larger, more capable Grand Starex Cargo into a Department of Health (DOH)-certified Type 1 ambulance.

Thanks to its front-mounted 2.5-liter common rail direct injection engine, the Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance not only cuts down on NVH, improving the safety and comfort of everyone aboard, but it also helps boost available interior space.


Inside, a partition panel separates the driver and passenger compartment making it ideal for transporting COVID-19 positive cases. Meanwhile, the twin-swing rear doors take up less space than a conventional tailgate, allowing it to be opened in smaller confines.

Anchored on these features, the Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance is outfitted with these “must-haves” certifying it as a Type 1 ambulance:
  • Emergency lights and siren
  • 3-seat front bench
  • Aluminum grab rail on top of patient stretcher
  • Built-in cabinet with sliding acrylic glass door and at least three shelves
  • Wheel type stretcher with straps
  • Folding stretcher
  • Orthopedic stretcher
  • Spine board with straps
  • Immobilization devices
  • Automatic external defibrillator (AED) with portable ECG
  • Nebulizer
  • Portable Suction Machine
  • Examining light
  • Aneroid Sphygmomanometer
  • Heavy duty stethoscopes (1 pediatric, 1 adult)
  • Non-contact thermometer
  • Blood-Glucose meter with strips
  • Manual resuscitators for adult, pediatric, and infant
  • Oxygen cylinder with oxygen therapy set
  • Laryngoscope set
  • Endotracheal tubes for adult and pedia
  • Delivery set
  • Fire extinguisher (2A10BC rating), mounted
  • Heavy duty LED flashlight at least 1000 lumens
  • Extra batteries
  • IV holder
  • Air purifier with multi-stage air filters
  • Garbage container at least 3-liter capacity
  • Sharps container with sliding lid with a capacity of at least 1liter
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)


And despite the expected hard service life, the Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance is still backed up by Hyundai’s 5-year / unlimited mileage warranty.

The Grand Starex Cargo Ambulance is now being offered for both government and private use (schools, neighborhood associations, companies). It’s available for order at all authorized Hyundai dealerships nationwide.
