Sanford AirMed ready to take to the skies

(Bismarck, N.D.)—Sanford AirMed will take flight in the region Monday, June 17. This life-saving air ambulance service will provide medical transport to critically ill or injured patients throughout central and western North Dakota, eastern Montana and northern South Dakota.

“Time is crucial in emergency and trauma situations, and Sanford AirMed will help us provide care quickly and in locations where it’s difficult for ambulances to travel,” said Kadon Hintz, MD, emergency physician and Bismarck medical director for Sanford AirMed.

Sanford Health, first responders and community leaders from around the region celebrated the service’s launch Friday, June 14, with a dedication ceremony at Century High School in Bismarck.

“Sanford Health made a promise to invest in local health care in western and central North Dakota, and Sanford AirMed is another example of delivering on that promise,” Craig Lambrecht, MD, president of the Bismarck region of Sanford Health.

Sanford AirMed’s Bismarck base consists of a helicopter and a highly trained team of flight paramedics, flight nurses, pilots and mechanics chosen for their expertise in their fields. A flight paramedic, flight nurse and pilot will be on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Hospitals and first responders can activate the service by calling (800) 437-6886. Sanford AirMed will transport patients to the facility of their choice or to the nearest appropriate medical facility. The helicopter can travel up to 165 miles per hour and fly for two hours and 30 minutes.

Sanford AirMed operates a fleet of four helicopters and four airplanes from bases in Bismarck, Fargo, Sioux Falls and Bemidji. With a dedicated Communications Center in Sioux Falls, Sanford AirMed can launch a helicopter within 10 minutes of accepting the call from the referring hospital or first responder unit.
