Baptist Health MedFlight, the healthcare systems’ air ambulance, will be participating in the Saline County Health and Wellness Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 14 at Bryant First United Methodist Church located at 508 North Reynolds Road.
Free and open to the community, the Saline County Health and Wellness Fair will feature more than 30 exhibitors providing health and wellness information. Other offerings include health screenings, disaster and emergency services, fitness demonstrations, and children’s activities.
Celebrating its 30th year of operation, Baptist Health MedFlight makes more than 490 transports annually from across the state as well as makes appearances at community events like the Saline County Health and Wellness Fair.
MedFlight is equipped with life support systems and staffed by emergency medical care professionals who work to stabilize and treat patients during transport. In fact, Baptist Health is the only healthcare system to provide a special neonatal intensive care team on flights for high-risk mothers-to-be and critically ill infants. It was the first air ambulance transportation service in Arkansas to obtain approval to perform Rapid Sequence Intubation in the field and the only Arkansas-based aeromedical service to transport Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumps.
Baptist Health is the state’s most comprehensive healthcare system. With more than 175 points of access, including eight hospitals, Baptist Health is committed to delivering “All Our Best” in healthcare to the people of Arkansas.
