News

SALEM, Va. (WFXR) – A new rooftop helipad is ready for use at Lewisgale Medical Center in Salem.

The old landing spot meant an ambulance ride from the helicopter to the hospital. The new rooftop pad will eliminate that ride and expedite care. Lewisgale says they are using helicopters more as they expand their services.
