Air Medical Base Opens In Daingerfield

Daingerfield, TX – A trusted name in air medical services is ready to answer the call when Morris County and surrounding area residents need emergency care. LifeNet Air 4, a partner of LifeNet, opened a new base at the Daingerfield Volunteer Fire Department today. It brings air medical support for emergent and trauma situations and interfacility transports for patients needing to move between hospitals for specialized care.

The new base in Daingerfield adds to the LifeNet program established in Eastern Texas. It is part of Air Methods, the largest provider of air medical services in the United States. The new base is at 823 Watson Blvd., Daingerfield, TX 75638.

“LifeNet is excited to expand operations into the Daingerfield community,” said Jess Gibbs, director of specialty care services with LifeNet Air. “We will combine efforts with our existing ground crews to offer complete air and ground emergency services.”

LifeNet Air 4 flies a Bell 407 helicopter and carries top-of-the-line equipment, including a Zoll X series monitor and Hamilton T1 ventilator. They also have blood in flight, which the crew’s trauma clinicians can administer to patients in flight when there is a risk of severe blood loss or hemorrhagic shock. All clinicians and pilots have years of experience in the field and receive advanced, ongoing training.

“We are thrilled to bring air medical services to the people of Daingerfield and Morris County,” said Leslie Lovell, account executive with Air Methods. “We have great relationships with the ground ambulance crew and the community at large and are proud to bring this additional resource to our friends and families in the area. We also have the support of an additional helicopter and a fixed-wing airplane at our base in Texarkana, so the people of Morris County are well-covered.”

Air Methods is committed to providing air medical services to all members of its communities and has in-network agreements with most major health insurance companies. In addition, our patient advocacy program works with all patients, regardless of insurance, to ensure affordability.
