Metro Aviation recently delivered an Airbus H135 helicopter to Washington Hospital Center’s MedSTAR Transport program.
The hospital partnered with Metro Aviation to customize the aircraft at Metro’s completion center in Shreveport, Louisiana. The H135 features a standard medical interior including various specialty add-ons, including a Cardiosave mount for hemodynamic support and Outerlink’s IRIS – a system for satellite tracking, push-to-talk radio, flight data monitoring, and voice and video recording.
“We’re excited to get a newer aircraft,” said Heather Stamey, assistant executive director of MedStar Transport. “It’s the first design to secure our ventilator system.”
“We really enjoyed the whole project and can’t say enough about the customer service at Metro Aviation,” she added.
This aircraft joins MedStar Transport’s fleet of four existing air medical helicopters, which aid in the transport of approximately 10,000 patients a year.
