American Eurocopter sells EC145 to Nationwide Children’s Hospital

Eurocopter EC145Nationwide Children’s Hospital of Columbus has begun its new hospital-based air medical transport program with the purchase of a Eurocopter EC145 from American Eurocopter.

The helicopter entered into service in February and is based at The Ohio States University airport.

“With approximately 30 percent of all neonatal admissions to Nationwide Children’s requiring a drive of more than an hour, the addition of this aircraft allows the hospital’s dedicated neonatal and pediatric transport team to initiate specialized critical care services more quickly,” said Edward Shepherd, MD, section chief of Neonatology at Nationwide Children’s and a faculty member at OSU College of Medicine.
