    SANTA ROSA — REACH Air Medical Services and Methodist Healthcare announced the expansion of their partnership providing emergency helicopter service to include a second base in Pearsall, Texas, called Methodist AirCare 2.

    Service began on Dec. 12. AirCare 2 will provide life-saving round-the-clock emergency medical helicopter service from a base located 50 miles southwest of San Antonio where AirCare 1 is located. AirCare 2 will help meet the increasing air ambulance demands of this large region and will better serve and support the community.

    “Our partnership with Methodist has been extraordinarily successful,” saidJim Adams, chief executive officer of REACH. “It became apparent that a second base in the region would provide enhanced patient care and customer satisfaction through the mutual support these two bases allow.”

    REACH also announced new hospital partnerships within the southwest Texas region. These include Frio Regional Hospital in Pearsall, Val Verde Regional Medical Center in Del Rio, as well as La Salle and Frio County pre-hospital providers. The aircraft and highly-trained teams will serve the region with hospital-to-hospital transports as well as responding to 911 emergency calls.
