FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LIFESTAR Adds Airplane to Service

Texas Panhandle, Surrounding Regions

 

Amarillo, Texas, Sept. 30, 2016 - Northwest Texas Healthcare System and Med-Trans Corporation have expanded their LIFESTAR partnership with the addition of a state-of-the-art, pressurized turboprop airplane. The twin-engine aircraft, which operates with critical care flight nurses and paramedics from the Amarillo-based healthcare system and flight crews from Med-Trans, is based at Rick Husband Amarillo National Airport.

 The LIFESTAR King Air E-90 airplane, with a 1,400-mile range, will service parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. It joins a medically equipped Airbus H135 LIFESTAR helicopter, based at Northwest Texas Healthcare System's main Amarillo facility, as well as a Bell 407 helicopter based in Pampa, Texas.

 "The addition of a fixed wing medical transport now enables the LIFESTAR team to transport emergent, non-emergent and specialty patients for much longer distances and during inclement weather," said Northwest Texas Healthcare System Chief Executive Officer Mark Crawford. "We are so pleased that Med-Trans made this additional investment in the success of the LIFESTAR operation in Amarillo." 

LIFESTAR and predecessor operations have provided the Texas Panhandle region with safe

and dedicated service since 1993, transporting more than 17,000 patients to definitive care. Adding airplane capabilities is a natural progression and extends Northwest Texas Healthcare System's continuum of critical care capabilities through seamless medical oversight from bedside to bedside.

 Med-Trans President Rob Hamilton said, "With the addition of this aircraft based in the Texas Panhandle, LIFESTAR will be able to reach other medical centers and healthcare systems throughout parts of five states. Its capabilities also extend the benefits of membership in the AirMedCare network."

Northwest Texas Healthcare System is staffed by nearly 500 physicians who offer specialized services in behavioral health, cardiac care, pediatrics, women's services, emergency medicine, trauma and surgical services, as well as physical medicine, rehabilitation and other medical services.
