Cabell Huntington Hospital and HealthNet Aeromedical Services on Monday unveiled a new Eurocopter EC-130 aircraft designed to enhance patient care in the region.
HealthNet president and chief executive officer Clinton Burley said the new helicopter, which features more space and the latest technology, adds a new dimension to the non-profit's legacy of service in the region.
Cabell Huntington Hospital president and CEO Brent Marsteller said the hospital hosted the first HealthNet helicopter in 1987 and the latest helicopter is an example of how much the two organizations' relationship has grown since then.
"This is a strong demonstration of Cabell Huntington Hospital's commitment to HealthNet Aeromedical Services and its mission to serve those who are critically ill or injured," Marsteller said.
Cabell Huntington Hospital is one of HealthNet's three sponsor hospitals across the state. The others are Charleston Area Medical Center and West Virginia University Hospitals in Morgantown.
