St. Vincent StatFlight to Host Open House for Community

EVANSVILLE (WEHT) - In August, St. Vincent announced that the new St. Vincent StatFlight base would replace the former St. Vincent LifeFlight program that had been in service for more than 35 years. Effective today, St. Vincent StatFlight, operated by PHI Air Medical, is officially providing services in the Evansville community and is now the largest air medical provider in Indiana.
 
The public is invited to an Open House from 11am – 2pm on November 15, to learn more about the services offered, meet the staff, and to see the new St. Vincent StatFlight branded Airbus EC 135 helicopter, which will be on display. The helicopter is equipped with state-of-the-art, industry leading technology and equipment, such night vision goggles, Helicopter Traffic Awareness Warning System, Auto Pilot and will be capable of flying with IFR (Instrument Flying Rules) technology in the coming months. Additionally, the new base will carry life-saving blood products and will be capable of transporting specialty patients that require an intra-aortic balloon pump or ventricular assist device.
 
St. Vincent partnered with PHI Air Medical in 2010 to form the St. Vincent StatFlight program, which is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Medical Transport Services (CAMTS). Other locations for StatFlight include Anderson, Greencastle, West Lafayette, Rushville and Seymour, Indiana.
