Medical helicopter service adding base in Hastings

A medical transportation company will be stationing a helicopter in Hastings to complement flights from its base at North Platte Regional Airport.

Midwest Medical Transport Co., Nebraska's largest private ambulance operator, operates ambulance and wheelchair transportation services in Hastings and 12 other cities across Nebraska and western Iowa and has been operating a single Midwest MedAir helicopter out of North Platte since 2010.

Adding a second, Hastings-based helicopter to the company's fleet will improve its crews' emergency response times and expand the company's outreach.
