New EMS Interiors for Utah Medical Helos

Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City, Utah recently received the first of five Grand New helicopters with a US-certified emergency medical service interior designed by Spectrum Aeromed.

The customized EMS interior for IHC’s Grand New helicopter features a state-of-the-art single-patient stretcher platform, a secondary foldable and stowable patient stretcher, as well as comprehensive advanced life support packages comprised of medical oxygen, suction, compressed air and an electric inverter.

The dedicated EMS configuration has modular capabilities, which makes it easy for the medical team and pilots to interchange the components as specific emergency needs arise without the need for on-site mechanics. The air ambulance equipment is also interchangeable with IHC’s other aircraft in the Life Flight fleet.

“We couldn’t be more pleased about the solutions Spectrum Aeromed developed for us. When lives are at stake minutes count, so the fact that anyone on our flight crew can install or remove any of our air ambulance equipment and move it from one aircraft to another means we’re up in the air that much sooner. This flexibility enhances safety and quality of patient care,” says Jerry Morrison, Executive Director of Intermountain Life Flight. 

Spectrum Aeromed is collaborating with AgustaWestland in Italy, AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corporation in Philadelphia, PA and RSG AeroDesign, LLC in Fort Worth, TX to outfit this and four more Grand New helicopters for IHC’s Life Flight fleet.
