CAREFLIGHT COMING TO DARKE COUNTY - February 18, 2020
The CareFlight Air & Mobile program is expanding to include a fourth base of operations in Versailles, in northeast Darke County. The helicopter, to be housed at Midmark Corp.’s private hangar, will serve as CareFlight’s northwest base in the region and will begin responding to emergency calls from that location as early as late February. Once the program’s expansion is complete, CareFlight will have four bases of operation – at Miami Valley Hospital, Lebanon-Warren County Airport, Urbana-Grimes Airport, and the Darke County Airport next to Midmark Corp. As Dayton’s first medical transport program, CareFlight has transported more than 70,000 patients since its start in 1983. CareFlight helicopters are the region’s fastest, traveling up to 180 mph, and serve a 150-mile radius, covering most of Ohio and parts of West Virginia, Michigan, Kentucky, and Indiana. CareFlight has the unique capability to transport two patients, plus the pilot and two certified flight nurses. Midmark Corp. is the only clinical environmental design company that enables a better care experience for the medical, dental and animal health markets. John Baumann, president and CEO stated, “We are extremely delighted to partner with Premier Health on this important initiative. Its goal to bring rapid response to emergency health care aligns well with our mission to improve the point of care experience between patients and caregivers, enabling better outcomes. We are thankful for the CareFlight team and the critical care services they provide to our community.”
