Sanford Beginning AirMed Service In Bismarck

BISMARCK, Nd

Dakotas-based Sanford Health says it will begin its Bismarck-based air ambulance service on Monday.

Sanford says its AirMed helicopter will provide medical transport to critically ill or injured patients throughout central and western North Dakota, eastern Montana and northern South Dakota.

The Bismarck base includes a helicopter and a team of flight paramedics, flight nurses, pilots and mechanics. A flight paramedic, flight nurse and pilot will be on duty every day at all hours.

Company executives, first responders and community leaders launched the service Friday with a dedication ceremony at Century High School.

Emergency physician Kadon Hintz says time is crucial in emergency and trauma situations, and the helicopter will help doctors provide quick care in locations where it's difficult for ambulances to travel.
