Medical Transport Alternative

Posted: Updated:

When the need for specialized medical care arises --- Minot Air Medical takes flight.

The medical flight company has been flying for over 30 years, but stationed a crew in Minot in July.

The critical care transport will fly patients anywhere in the lower 48 states if that individual is unable to tolerate a ground transport.

Chief Flight Medic Stuart Hammer says the company is seeing more transports for out of state workers.

Many times Workmans Comp prefers the patient to be treated in their home state.

Most medical cases can be handled by the flight medics.

There are a few specialty cases that Air Medical will add in the future such as neonatal intensive care.

Hammer says the service is an important part of a growing community.

(Stuart Hammer, Chief Flight Medic) "Sometimes those patients need specialized care that isn't available at Trinity or even in North Dakota so we're here to take them to those locations where they can get that care."

The Bismarck Air Medical team was established in 2002.
