Air Methods subsidiary LifeStar Georgia has opened a new base to serve the southern part of the US state. The base will be home to a Bell 407 fstaffed by a permanent crew of flight and medical staff. The base’s clinicians will also be trained and equipped for paediatric intensive care transport. “We will be able to facilitate air medical transports for trauma, STEMI, stroke, LVAD and ventilator patients to Level 1 or 2 trauma facilities or other tertiary care facilities,” said Jason Bober, Area Manager with Air Methods.

Crystal Hensler, EMS Director with the Liberty County Board of Commissioners added: “Liberty County is excited to have this beneficial resource within our community. Air medical transportation is vital to our emergency missions. We are grateful to have LifeStar 2 with enhanced specialized medical care for critically injured or ill patients.”
