SAMC welcomes Wiregrass Life Flight
Wiregrass Life Flight, a partnership with Pilcher's Ambulance Service and Air Medical Resource Group out of Utah, began operation on September 23. The emergency helicopter service will be housed at SAMC until a permanent site can be constructed. Wiregrass Life Flight will bring emergency patients into Dothan from as far away as 300 miles.
