Med-Trans Corporation opens new base in Texas

Air medical transport company Med-Trans Corporation has opened a new AeroCare medical helicopter base in Plainview, Texas, joining a ground ambulance already operating there. A medically-equipped Bell 407 helicopter is now available at Hale County Airport to serve patients in the Texas Panhandle and surrounding areas. "Fully staffed, AeroCare VIII in Plainview will have four pilots, four nurses and four paramedics," said Business Development Manager Bobby Sanchez.

"Med-Trans Corporation is pleased to be able to incorporate this additional resource into the area's healthcare assets," said Med-Trans President Rob Hamilton. "This expansion reflects years of successful air and ground medical transports and is a positive development for world-class patient care in the area." AeroCare VIII joins seven other air medical locations in Texas and New Mexico, serving emergency air transport in a three-state region. Plainview is located between Amarillo and Lubbock.
