The medical tent at Jamboree in the Hills is set up and ready to go.

Staff was finishing up the setup on Monday, but treated patients on Sunday night and will continue though the week.

The service is provided by East Ohio Regional Hospital, Ohio Valley Medical Center and LiveNation.

Staci Trudo, with Ohio Valley Health Service and Education Corp., said the entire operation cost between $50,000-$60,000.

"We have the ability here to treat absolutely anything that comes in," said Trudo.

The tent is staffed with doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.

Trudo said they will go through thousands of Band-Aids and pain medicine packets this week.

She said this year with the milder temperatures, people will need to watch for sunburn.

"Make sure you are wearing sunscreen because with the overcast you can't tell how much sun you're getting," said Trudo. "If you're drinking alcohol, stay hydrated."

The medical tent is free of charge to concertgoers.
