Mercy Air Lands New Base in Barstow

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, February 5, 2019, Mercy Air has announced the opening of a new base at the former site of Barstow Community Hospital. The “Mercy Air 66” base at 555 S. Seventh Avenue provides critical air medical services around the clock to the Barstow area and surrounding communities, the company said. The new Barstow location will result in quicker response times for emergency and trauma situations, and will provide lifesaving care in emergency situations, according to Mercy Air. During air missions, trained medical teams care for patients with lifesaving medical interventions, from providing trauma care after a collision to administering clot-busting medications that must be given shortly after a major stroke to significantly improve outcomes, Mercy Air said.
