Critical Care Transport Visits

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Seconds count when you are critically ill or injured. For this reason, Kennewick General Hospital invited community members to meet the team of Northwest MedStar.

MedStar provides emergency transportation for people by helicopter, airplane and ambulance and most of their response times are less than an hour.

"It gives you a piece of mind and you need that service. They come out whether you have insurance or not. They don't question. They respond to the call from first responders to accidents or the doctor," said Joe Reeder, volunteer of MedStar.

Northwest MedStar provides over 3,500 helicopter, fixed wing and ground-based  transports a year.
