Vanderbilt Hospital Unveilves Its New Helicopter To Giles County
Posted on June 22, 2012
A new helicopter in the Vanderbilt hospital fleet is a chopper of a different color. It's blue, not black and gold like the
rest. The reason for the change is color is for safety. The new chopper recently toured Giles County and local officials
got a first hand look. The new aircraft has a faster takeoff time, can lift heavier loads , sports a cabin large enough for
its crew to reach anywhere on the patient and a room to carry a family member of the patient.
Local EMS Director Roy Griggs, EMS Supervisor Tommy Gatlin and Giles Medical Examiner Doctor Joe Fite met with the
pilot and crew.
