Community welcomes StatFlight to RMH

Local and county leaders and emergency response personnel from throughout the area attended Wednesday’s open house at Rush Memorial Hospital to welcome the county’s newest medical transport service, StatFlight air ambulance. It was announced earlier this year that PHI Air Medical, L.L.C., was placing a state of the art Bell 407 medical helicopter at RMH as a means to better serve the citizens of Rush and surrounding counties in east central Indiana. That became a reality with the Wednesday morning arrival of the helicopter and flight staff.

The service is a part of St. Vincent Health Care and begins formal operation today. According to RMH CEO Brad Smith, the service will provide another life saving measure for critically ill patients.

Recently, the county commissioners agreed to ground ambulance transportation service contracts with the county’s three volunteer services - Anderson Township, Carthage and Raleigh and the ambulance service operated out of RMH for 2014. The contract calls for RMH to receive $335,000 to provide emergency 911 paramedic service to the central district of the county, an area that includes Arlington, Glenwood, Homer, Manilla and Milroy. During 2012, the RMH ambulance responded to 1,830 emergency calls and through the first 11 months of 2013, 1,544 ambulance runs have been made.

As previously reported in the Rushville Republican, beginning Jan. 1, the Rushville Fire Department will offer basic EMT medical service and transport for the citizens of Rushville.
