WLOX Editorial: Critical care chopper most welcome

Critical care just got better in South Mississippi. The addition of a medical helicopter based at the Ocean Springs Hospital for emergency air transport is welcome.

Singing River Health System teamed up with Ochsner Health Care to provide this service. Basing the flight in Ocean Springs certainly reduces the response time, if air transport is needed for critically ill or injured patients.

The helicopter, operated by Med-Trans Corp. will carry a critical care nurse and a critical care paramedic. Our congratulations to Ochsner and Singing River for forging this partnership.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
