DICKINSON, North Dakota — A Dakotas hospital is adding an air ambulance service based in the state's oil patch.
Sanford AirMed is expected to be operating in Dickinson by late fall. It will feature a King Air B200 fixed wing aircraft that can travel 1,500 miles and land on a short runway. The plane can carry two patients and five critical care attendants.
Sanford AirMed will replace a void left by Texas-based Med-Trans, a national provider of air transport services that is closing its office in Dickinson.
Sanford Health is based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Fargo, North Dakota.
