Lifeline: Helicopter (Rotor-wing) Transport Medevac 10

Helicopter Transport

Helicopter Transport


Emergency Medical Transport Service is available to The Johns Hopkins Hospital through Lifeline. This service is operated by STAT MedEvac, an FAA certified Air Carrier Service, E3MA774L.  MedEvac 10 is its call sign and it is staffed on a 24/7 basis by a pilot, paramedic and Johns Hopkins Lifeline Flight Nurse.

In May of 2006, MedEvac 10 placed into service a new American Eurocopter EC145, which is a twin-engine aircraft with spacious room and is emblazoned with the new Hopkins Medicine logo.  The new aircraft can accommodate excellent weight and lifting capacity.  This added capacity with the new aircraft becomes beneficial in such instances when a PICU Doctor and PICU Nurse will accompany the patient in addition to the flight crew.  MedEvac 10 currently averages approximately 70 flights per month.
