Children’s Health, Dallas, Texas, Sikorsky S-76C++

By January 18, 2022No Comments

Children’s Health has been operating helicopters as part of its Neonatal and Pediatric Specialty Transport service since 2005, normally carrying premature infants, children, and high-risk obstetrical patients—sometimes with family members—on 25 to 30 flights each month. Those flights were less frequent at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic but are now approaching their previous level.

While the main Children’s Health facilities are in Dallas, their S-76C++ was photographed in a suburb north of the city, on the helipad at Children’s Medical Center Plano. On board were pilot Kandy Fleming, pilot Hayden Bergin, registered respiratory therapist Timothy Dewberry, paramedic Luke Coffee, and registered nurse Jayme Pemberton.
