Metro Aviation is welcoming Gundersen Health System to the Metro Family this fall. MedLink AIR, the emergency medical helicopter for Gundersen Health System, will soon be operated by Metro.

The program serves La Crosse, Wisconsin and surrounding areas within a 150-mile radius, including communities through the tri-state region of western Wisconsin, northeastern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota.

“MedLink AIR is a CAMTS accredited program and has a long history of outstanding service in their community,” said Metro Aviation President Mike Stanberry. “We are excited to have such a stellar program join the Metro family and look forward to a long partnership with MedLink AIR.”

MedLink AIR utilizes an EC145 with a full complement of emergency equipment for advanced life support. The crew can also care for and transport infants and high-risk maternal patients by utilizing their special neonatal transport team.

“We are excited about the opportunity to work with Metro Aviation, who is already well known in the industry for their focus on providing outstanding customer service and safe operations for traditional air medical programs,” said Scott Sampey, MedLink AIR Program Director.

Metro Aviation will assume operation of MedLink AIR October 1.
