UMMC expands AirCare helicopter service with northern Mississippi base

UMMC expands AirCare helicopter service with northern Mississippi base

The University of Mississippi Medical Center has expanded its AirCare fleet from two to three helicopters, stationing an additional aircraft at Golden Triangle Regional Airport in Columbus and improving access to critical care services to north Mississippi.

The helicopter became operational April 1. Additional bases are located at UMMC's main campus in Jackson and at Meridian.

“Our priority is getting care to the patient,” said Dr. Damon Darsey, associate professor of emergency medicine and medical director of the Mississippi Center for Emergency Services.

The Airbus helicopters, equipped to fly in marginal weather conditions, are supported by Mississippi's only Level 1 trauma care hospital, providing 24/7 in-house neurosurgical and critical-care coverage and total care for every aspect of injury.  The helicopters are paid for through UMMC's hospital patient-care activities, not from state tax dollars.

UMMC is leasing office and hangar space from Airbus at its GTR airport facility.

Zippity Doo Dah Weekend raises funds, fights cancer

Ashley Nolen was leaping about the Kolb's Dry Cleaning parking lot in Fondren and squealing. 

And why shouldn't she? It's not every day someone gets to fight childhood cancer and win a Honda Fit at the same time. 

Nolen, a Jackson resident with an aging Toyota, bought a $10 ticket from Friends of Children's Hospital in hopes of winning the car donated by Patty Peck Honda as part of Zippity Doo Dah Weekend.  

Funds raised during the weekend's events went to Friends of Children's Hospital, an organization that raises funds for Batson Children's Hospital. This year, the funds are earmarked for a clean room where life-saving treatments can be mixed for patients at the Children's Cancer Center at the state's only children's hospital. 

"I love Batson Children's Hospital," Nolen said before learning she, as one of 10 key finalists, had chosen the key to unlock her win. "I do anything and everything I can for Batson."
