CUERO, DEWITT COUNTY - A new medical helicopter service will
soon start work on its building behind Cuero Community Hospital.
Air Evac Lifeteam’s new center will feature a helicopter
hangar for the Bell 206 Long Ranger Helicopter and a modular building that will
serve as the crew's quarters.
"This transport is indicated for severely ill or
unstable patients," said Judy Krupala, chief nursing officer and interim
CEO for Cuero Community Hospital.
The helicopter service's 70-mile operating radius will cover
calls between San Antonio and El Campo and between Bastrop and Fulton.
The center will cost up to $300,000 to build, and four
rotating crews of three members will staff the helicopter 24 hours a day.
