Posted by wlpo on January 21, 2010

St. Mary’s is the first hospital in the Illinois Valley to have its own helicopter and flight transport team.

Hospital officials announced today a helicopter called “Saints Flight” will be permanently stationed at the hospital’s helipad.  The copter is owned by a company in St. Louis.

The copter should be able to increase response time with cruise speeds of up to 150 miles per hour.
