Medical transport: When every minute counts

Because the first hour after an emergency is the most critical, Parkview’s two Samaritan helicopters – with crews trained in advanced life support (ALS) and advanced on-board trauma technology – are always standing by to provide rapid air transport for critically ill or injured patients. Samaritan 1 is based in Fort Wayne at Parkview Regional Medical Center; Samaritan 2 is based at Fulton County Airport in Rochester, Ind. Both medical helicopters are called into action by Parkview Huntington Hospital’s EMS dispatch system, and can respond to emergencies in a 100-mile radius of the two communities. 

For residents of northern Indiana, northwest Ohio and southwest Michigan, Samaritan has become a familiar presence in the skies. Since 1989, Samaritan helicopter crews have flown more than 20,400 patients who needed critical medical assistance.

The similarly equipped Samaritan Mobile ICU (Intensive Care Unit) is also ready 24 hours a day to provide rapid ground transport for high-risk patients.

By land and by air, Samaritan responds to accident scenes anywhere in the region to provide lifesaving care when every minute counts. Learn more.

In addition, the dedicated emergency medical response professionals who staff 23 ambulances across the Parkview Health system are always on alert to provide care when emergencies occur. No matter whether you live in Topeka, Bippus or Hoagland, Parkview EMS services are only minutes away.
