Mercy NICU Transport Helicopter

ARDMORE, Okla. - The need for expedited transport of critically ill mothers and newborns in southern Oklahoma has been a goal of Mercy for some time now. In an effort to provide the specialized care that pre-term pregnancies require, Mercy's Oklahoma communities now have their very own transport helicopter that will accommodate mothers and babies. In a partnership with Air Methods, Mercy will be able to transport from Mercy Hospital Ardmore and Valley View Regional Hospital in Ada, Okla. to the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit located within Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City.

In the below article by The Ardmoreite's Michael Pineda, the details of the new transport and care are discussed.
