We are happy to announce the delivery of two Airbus AS350/H125 aircrafts to LifeSave 21 and 22, an Air Methods program. The two bases are located in Emporia, KS (LifeSave 21) and Dodge City, KS (LifeSave 22). Both bases hosted ribbon cutting ceremonies to give their communities firsthand looks at the latest additions to their fleets.

The Airbus AS350/H125 boasts best-in-class clinical and safety benefits – making it the most utilized air medical craft in the United States. These aircrafts are reliable, versatile and shine in scene transport areas and we are grateful for the opportunity to show communities how they will be used to better serve patients in times of emergency.

During missions, LifeSave crews are trained to execute lifesaving patient interventions – all while enroute to the hospital. The clinical support and speed of transport is critical to ensure patients receive the best and most timely treatment possible. In partnership with Newman Regional Health in Emporia and Western Plains Medical Center in Dodge City, the helicopters will be based out of their respective hospitals so patients can continue their care journey immediately after touchdown.

Local caregivers, EMS, and Chamber Members were on site to hear from LifeSave crews on how this aircraft will be used in life saving interventions across Kansas. From providing trauma care after an accident, to administering clot-busting medications after a major stroke, the helicopter will significantly improve outcomes for patients needing immediate care in the community. 

Access to healthcare during a medical emergency is a critical need for every community. LifeSave is an in-network provider with a robust patient advocacy team to help patients navigate post-flight insurance requirements to keep patients’ out-of-pocket cost low. We are proud to serve a vital role in making certain that during an emergency, our friends and neighbors are rapidly provided the medical care they need.

Our subsidiary in Kansas and Nebraska, LifeSave Transport (LifeSave), is adding to its growing teams in Kansas and Nebraska with opportunities available for pilots, nurses, paramedics, and A&P mechanics for both helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. Bases are located throughout Kansas in Colby, Dodge City, Emporia, Garden City, Liberal, and Salina, as well as in McCook, Nebraska.

LifeSave is recruiting new crew members due to the growing need for air medical services in the region. At a time when more than 85 million Americans live more than an hour’s drive from Level I or II trauma centers, there is an increasing demand for air medical services to ensure that patients have access to necessary care centers.

“Access to lifesaving air medical services is incredibly important to communities throughout Kansas and Nebraska,” said Amy Conner, our vice president of customer experience.  “We have a wealth of talented teammates who serve these communities, and we are excited to add even more to our team. In emergency situations, minutes can mean the difference between life and death and it takes special people to answer that call.”

“Air medical staff all over the country have served bravely throughout the pandemic, not only caring for COVID patients, but also continuing to treat people suffering other serious illnesses and injuries,” our senior vice president of human resources, Heather Dumas, added. “We recognize the value of our frontline teammates and invest in them to be the best in the air medical industry. LifeSave is committed to a sense of purpose, a proud culture, opportunities for growth, extensive benefits, and a work/life balance that includes flexible scheduling.”
