FARGO, ND — Spectrum Aeromed recently completed a project with Haiti Air Ambulance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing emergency helicopter services to the people and visitors of Haiti.
Contracted through PAC International, Spectrum Aeromed outfitted the interior of a Bell 407 aircraft with a patient stretcher and base assembly and medical floor. The project was completed and delivered to Haiti Air Ambulance in late 2020.
The project marks the first time Spectrum Aeromed has worked with Haiti Air Ambulance.
“A new customer is always exciting,” said Matthew Christenson, VP Account Executive for Spectrum Aeromed. “Haiti Air Ambulance is an experienced team, and we are very proud to be able to support them with the addition of this new Bell 407 helicopter to their program.”
Haiti Air Ambulance is the leading provider of emergency medical helicopter services in Haiti; it is the only service in the country flying critically ill or injured patients to emergency medical care providers.
“Assisting with their mission of providing service to the people of Haiti and working directly with the flight medical team gives us great pride. We look forward to hearing how our equipment helps support and build their mission”, Christenson continued.
Cory Oaks, Program Director with Haiti Air Ambulance shared, “Haiti Air Ambulance is excited for the completion of our new aircraft and our return to service for the citizens of Haiti. The configuration and interior components allow us to transport patients in our unique environment and stand up to its rigorous demands.”
