A division of Midwest Medical Transport, which has an office in Neligh, has added a new medical helicopter to its fleet.
Columbus Community Hospital held an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony last week to celebrate the acquisition of a new medical helicopter to the area with MedAir.
The base manager for MedAir, Joseph Roberts, understands the benefit that another medical helicopter brings to Columbus and the surrounding areas.
“The time difference between bases, between other helicopter services, is quite large so to be able to provide the community this service that’s here in Columbus will allow us to respond to not only Columbus but to surrounding hospitals in a lot more expedient manner,” said Roberts.
