Plzeň hospital heliport expected to save minutes during emergencies

A new heliport equipped with a heated landing pad at Plzeň’s Teaching Hospital is expected to save minutes during emergency transfers. Patients in serious or critical condition should be transferred even more quickly to the emergency ward, the head of the hospital Václav Šimánek said. The heliport will be fully operational within days. This year some 337 patients in medical emergencies were transferred to the hospital by helicopter.
