The communities of southwestern Kansas and the Oklahoma-Texas panhandle will soon gain one more resource when in need of emergency transport. EagleMed is proud to announce the coming expansion of fixed wing services within the company’s fleet of aircraft. The new base will be operated out of Liberal, Kansas. It is anticipated that EagleMed will begin providing services from the Liberal base by the end of May.
Jim Ballard comments that EagleMed is “very excited about working with Southwest Medical Center and Seward County EMS, as well as all of the other area hospitals, to assist as needed for medical transport of patients throughout the region.”
EagleMed, an Air Medical Group Holdings subsidiary, has long standing roots in Kansas. Started by Jim and Iva Ballard, EagleMed has been providing air transport to critical patients for over thirty years. The company’s strong focus on providing the highest quality patient care in the safest environment possible has lead to its continued growth.
