Helipad Returns to Popular Kingston, NY Hospital
LifeNet completes its first mission at the new on-site landing zone.
LifeNet of NY Medevac has over 40 years of air medical experience, with flight crews providing critical care life support to patients throughout New York and Pennsylvania, partnering with EMS, fire and hospitals to bring ICU-level care to those who need it most.
LeifeNet 7-5 serves the Catskill region, responding to calls primarily in Sullivan County, and parts of Delaware County, Ulster County and Orange County in addition to Northern Pennsylvania. They work closely with local EMS and Fire to provide access to specialty care centers and time-sensitive, critical interventions to patients in the community.
LifeNet took over the base when STAT Flight program ended. 7-5 recently upgraded from an AS-350 helicopter to an EC-130 to accommodate larger patients and relatives to ride when appropriate.
Last year, HealthAlliance Hospital opened a new $113 million facility on Mary's Avenue in Kingston to replace the hospital's outdated Broadway campus.
