Wichita-based EagleMed is adding 14 employees and a Beechcraft King Air B200 to a new critical care air medical operation near Houston in Spring, Texas.
In addition to serving south Texas, the Houston operation will conduct critical care flights into Mexico.
“At EagleMed, we are very pleased to add this important resource to a medical community that annually serves hundreds of thousands of patients with critical needs,” EagleMed president Larry Bugg said in a statement.
The King Air is EagleMed’s 20th. It is medically configured, is capable of instrument flight and has a range of about 900 miles round trip.
EagleMed is a subsidiary of Air Medical Group Holdings.
EagleMed employs more than 400 people and operates 15 medically-equipped Eurocopter helicopters, 20 King Airs and six ground ambulances in 14 states.
