EVANSVILLE -

St. Vincent Health has announced the addition of Evansville to the St. Vincent StatFlight program. The health system says, beginning in November, the city will become the program's sixth base, making it the largest air medical provider in Indiana. 

The program will replace the existing Evansville LifeFlight program, which has been in service in the city for more than 35 years. St. Vincent says approximately 90 LifeFlight employees, including pilots, mechanics, nurses, paramedics and others, will transition into the StatFlight program.

"We are grateful for the outstanding work that the LifeFlight program has provided to this community for the last 35 years,” said Dan Parod, President of the St. Vincent Southwest Region. "As we begin to take the next step in enhancing our air medical service we want the communities we serve to be assured that they will continue to have access to this vital service."

The new program will come with a new Airbus EC 135 helicopter equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, such as night vision goggles and Helicopter Traffic Awareness Warning System. St. Vincent formed the StatFlight program in 2010 in collaboration with PHI Air Medical.

The StatFlight program is also in use in Anderson, Greencastle, West Lafayette, Rushville and Seymour.
