US air ambulance service provider Air Evac Lifeteam is increasing its emergency air medical coverage in Kentucky with a new location in Lebanon. The base, Kentucky's 17th Air Evac Lifeteam site, is temporarily located at the Lebanon/Springfield airport.
Dan Durham, senior programme director says: “The base will serve residents within a 70 mile radius. The base brings nine full-time jobs to the area including pilots, medical crews, an aviation maintenance technician, a membership sales manager and a programme director.
“This newest Kentucky Air Evac Lifeteam base will be a 12-hour operation. Our crews are on duty seven days a week to provide access to a higher level of care for patients who have a life- or limb-threatening medical injury or illness. We are excited to work with local EMS agencies, first responders and hospital employees.”
Air Evac Lifeteam currently operates more than 150 air medical bases in 18 states. It is a participating provider in the AirMedCare Network, a US air medical transport membership programme with more than 320 air medical locations across 38 states.
