Wake Forest Baptist's AirCare Program Celebrates 30 Years


AirCare, the air ambulance program of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is celebrating 30 years of treating and transporting critically ill and injured patients.

From its first flight in 1986 to transport a child injured in an accident in Patrick County, VA, the men and women of AirCare have responded to around 20,000 calls from North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee and South Carolina.

The AirCare crew – made up of a pilot, a Wake Forest Baptist paramedic and a Wake Forest Baptist flight nurse – transports adult and pediatric patients with a variety of conditions, including trauma, cardiac, stroke and burns. Wake Forest Baptist is home to the only Level 1 trauma center in the region, one of only two burn centers in the state and one of only two Level 1 pediatric trauma centers in North Carolina.
