New Northwest MedStar Helicopter In The Greater Spokane Skies

Northwest MedStar received an Airbus H135 (formerly EC135) helicopter adding to their expansive fleet of twenty-one critical care transportation units serving a multi-state territory.

"This is an additional, long-term investment in Northwest MedStar's critical care operations," said Nancy Vorhees, Chief Administrative Office for Inland Northwest Health Services, Northwest MedStar's parent company. "For decades our critical care teams have worked with health care professionals to provide life-saving services, and that commitment will continue for years to come."

The Airbus H135 helicopter includes the next generation of avionics and enhanced situational awareness for pilots. Northwest MedStar purchased the helicopter and had it modified for air medical services.  The aircraft, based in Spokane, provides services throughout the Inland Northwest.

Northwest MedStar's fleet is comprised of eight helicopters, five airplanes (fixed wings) and eight critical care ground units located at six base locations including Missoula, Mont., Spokane, Moses Lake, Brewster, Tri-Cities and Palouse region.
