Air Evac Lifeteam To Open An Air Medical Base In Louisiana

Air Evac Lifeteam recently announced its air medical base in Carrollton, Ill., will move to Pike County
The crew and aircraft are now in service on the campus of Pike County Memorial Hospital in Louisiana. The crew and aircraft will locate at the hospital during the day until a permanent location is found and construction is completed. Air Evac Lifeteam is an independent provider of helicopter air ambulance services.
Air Evac Lifeteam Program Director Aaron Bradshaw said the move will provide even quicker access to patients living in and around Pike County.
“Air Evac Lifeteam has been a part of this community for many years, and we are excited to locate our base in Pike County,” he said. “Having an aircraft and crew here means faster access to definitive health care.”
Tylie Mills, CEO of Pike County Memorial Hospital, said she is excited for Air Evac Lifeteam to open a base in Pike County.
“Partnering with Air Evac provides quicker access for our community to have helicopter services as well as PCMH employees to gain higher level of expertise through increased educational courses. PCMH’s relationship with Air Evac is an exciting way to enhance our medical coverage and resources for critical patients in our community,” Mills said.
