ShandsCair launches new helicopter
Here’s a riddle: What’s orange and blue and saves people, too? The new ShandsCair helicopter now serving Taylor County, that’s what. In February, ShandsCair, the aeromedical and critical care transport system for UF&Shands, the University of Florida Academic Health Center, along with Med-Trans and Doctors’ Memorial Hospital in Perry, Fla., celebrated the addition of the program’s new orange and blue helicopter. On Nov. 1, the three groups launched ShandsCair 3, an air medical flight program based out of Taylor County. Until the new helicopter was unveiled, the program operated with a temporary helicopter.
