Carilion Clinic Life-Guard Crew Members Shed Pounds for Patients

Its a fact that all air ambulances have to deal with - helicopters have to follow strict weight limits in order to fly safely.

They started a collective weight-loss program and have all shed pounds in order to increase their capacity to transport patients. That is a truely personal committment to excellent patient care! Fortunately it rarely happens, but if a patient is too heavy to fly, Carilion Clinic Patient Transportation has a fleet of advanced life support ambulances for ground transport.
