Roosevelt General Hospital Hosting New Air Ambulance Base

Portales, NM - Patients with critical, or life-threatening, medical conditions will now receive quicker air ambulance transportation to regional and metropolitan hospitals due to TriState CareFlight opening a new base at Roosevelt General Hospital.

"TriState CareFlight is proud to continue expanding its air medical transport services throughout rural New Mexico," said Scott Stamper, TSCF's V.P. of Business Development. "The growing population of Portales deserves excellent and expedite care during critical moments of their lives. TriState CareFlight's partnership with Roosevelt General Hospital further ensures the protection of lives throughout a 125-mile radius of Portales."

For the Portales base, TriState CareFlight will station one of the fastest single jet engine helicopters in its class at Roosevelt General Hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Augsta Koloa A119 will provide hospital-to-hospital transport as well as scene response within a 125-mile radius of Portales. The on-site helicopter is expected to decrease transportation times by at least 30 minutes.
