LE CENTRE MEDICAL CIRCUIT BUGATTI AUTOMOBILE CLUB DU MANS
LE Centre Médical: Inauguré en Mai 2010, le centre médical sarticule autour de trois zones : - une zone des soins, - une zone administrative, - une zone de repos,
La zone des soins: 4 salles de soins et 2 salles de déchoc; toutes sont accessibles de lextérieur.

La zone des soins: Une des deux salles de déchoc.

La zone des soins: Une salle de soins où sont effectués les gestes courants sur un circuit.
La zone de nettoyage: Chaque ambulance est désinfectée après une intervention et réarmée avant de retourner à son poste.
La zone administrative: La deuxième zone est constituée par la salle de régulation où les alertes sont traitées. Le médecin décide des moyens et de la destination du blessé.
La zone administrative: La salle de régulation, informatisée, reçoit un appel toutes les deux minutes lors des 24 h moto. Elle est en liaison téléphonique ou radio avec les différents intervenants. Sur les 1500 interventions effectuées, seules 50 évacuations vers un centre hospitalier sont dénombrées.
La zone de repos: Située à larrière du bâtiment, le personnel dispose dune salle de restauration totalement équipée et dune terrasse.
La zone de repos: 5 chambres de garde de 4 lits sont à la disposition des intervenants.
LE CENTRE MEDICAL: Décrit de façon très succincte, ce centre médical est dans la réalité un très bel outil, dune surface de 500 m². Fonctionnel, il est apprécié par tous les intervenants.
