Medical helicopter to be based at Peru airport fulltime

Posted by wlpo on February 1, 2013

A heart attack in the middle in the night or a serious car crash- both situations would likely require a helicopter flight to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

Beginning this month OSF Life Flight will have a medical helicopter based at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport full-time.  They began keeping a helicopter at the Peru airport during peek hours in 2008.

Life Flight takes patients from Illinois Valley Community, St. Margaret’s, and other area hospitals.
