NBCRightNow.com - The region's premier critical care transport program has enhanced its regional service. Northwest MedStar has purchased an additional helicopter and an additional helicopter base in north central Washington.
These additions will help allow MedStar to better assist communities in eastern Washington, northeastern Oregon, northern Idaho, and western Montana.
Starting Saturday, June 15th, MedStar services will begin at the weekend day base in north central Washington. The new location will help improve access and availability to the Okanogan, Chelan, and Douglas counties during busy summer months. During weekdays, the helicopter will be used at other bases throughout the service region.
