Jason Isbell Wants to Help You Buy Huntsville a New Pediatric Ambulance

Giveaway Alert! Read to the bottom for details on how you can win tickets!

As parents, there are lots of things we hope we never need but are SO GLAD that they’re there. Band-Aids. Spare tires. IEPs. Pediatric ambulances are pretty high on that list.

You can help the Huntsville Hospital Foundation with that last one, and have a great time doing it on May 10th! Grammy Award-winning musicians, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will be headlining the 30th annual Huntsville Classic. Proceeds from this concert will provide a second Kids Care transport ambulance to kids in the North Alabama region, plus all the innovative equipment onboard.

Who Would a Pediatric Ambulance Help?

If your child has an accident, or needs to be transported from one hospital to another across state lines, they will need a pediatric ambulance. It is customized for the most vulnerable and smallest among us – a standard-sized ambulance can’t do the same job. A Kids Care Transport Ambulance has:

  • Pediatric trained staff and physicians
  • Innovative techniques used to alleviate fear, anxiety and pain in children
  • Medical equipment and technology that is designed and built specifically for pediatric patients

Every year, Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children transports up to 700 critically ill and injured infants and pediatric patients with their current Kids Care ambulance. The vehicle accommodates patients ages birth to 18, and is staffed 24/7 by a highly trained medical team with 200-plus years combined experience.

But Huntsville and North Alabama has grown, and Madison Hospital needs their own Kids Care unit to help treat little patients on the move. Simply put, local kids in medical distress need a second ambulance.

“It is our honor to safely and effectively transport these young patients every day, and a second Kids Care vehicle will ensure we can continue meeting the growing need during peak times,” said Danielle Armstrong, Huntsville Hospital Pediatric ICU unit director and Kids Care coordinator. “Concert goers in this year’s Huntsville Classic will have a direct impact on making this possible, and we are extremely grateful for their support!”

  • I would love to go to this, and support this cause. My son was born 7 weeks premie ahe having something like this is game changing. I’d bring my husband.

    • Congrats, Melissa! You are our random winner of the Jason Isbell giveaway! Please check your email to claim your tickets.

  • My daughter has tickets already, and I’m babysitting the grandkids so she and the hubby can go! I would love to win ticket so her friends could go with them, thanks!

  • Love the pediatric ambulance! Jason Isbell sounds like an amazing concert… here’s hoping I win! 🙂

  • I have known a few people who have need this type of transport. These folks are amazing!

  • I would love to take my husband to this. He does so much for our family and deserves it. Plus, we love Jason Isbell!

  • ooh Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit are the best! and are awesome for helping HH Foundation! 😍

  • My youngest rode in an Ambulance to Huntsville Hospital NICU from another hospital when she was just a few hours old. She is now 15 and loves Jason Isbell. So thankful he and his band are helping out HH Foundation.

  • I really want to win this so I can take my parents! Please pick me because they never have enough extra money to do or go anywhere. I know since their BIG music lovers that they would absolutely love this! ☺🤗

  • Outstanding! Huntsville Hospital Pediatric ER is such a blessing to people, I was fortunate enough to be a part of it when they first moved into the ‘new’ hospital up the street from the main campus. It was an amazing place with amazing staff. I didn’t realize this concert was raising money for a new pedi transport! Nice.

    If I win, I’ll sell the tickets I’ve already bought and donate the money to the Foundation! It’s a win-win. The hubby and I get an evening of great music and I get to help out two-fold.

  • I would bring my bestie! She’s never seen Isbell live. How great is this fundraiser???

  • I would take my dad, for sure. He is who introduced me to Jason Isbell’s music when his first solo album dropped, and I’ve been hooked since! We were supposed to see him at the Alabama Theatre in January (it would’ve been our first time seeing him live); however, we both were very sick with the flu and had no choice but to miss the show. We were SO UPSET! My dad’s Birthday is on May 11th…Winning tickets and being able to surprise him would be the absolute GREATEST birthday gift and would mean the entire world to him. *Fingers crossed*

  • If I won, I’d surprise my husband & take him. (Our 40th wedding anniversary is in May.) I can’t think of a more perfect way for us to celebrate than to be together at a Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit show! That would definitely make a perfect date night.

  • I would take my husband with me! We have 4 children, 2 who were HH NICU babies. What a great cause!

  • My husband and I would love to attend! We have two small kiddo’s and full time jobs. We also support the Huntsville homeless community FULL time. We have been following Jason for some time now. For me to surprise my husband with this gift of amazing night off (we serve every single day) and time to reflect and recharge on mitigating homelessness here in our city….priceless. We are proud of HH Foundation and a mom of two boys…thankful that we have such a fantastic Pediatric ER so close, and that Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit recognize the need and making a difference for our community.
