Air Ambulance Base Planned for Mississippi’s Golden Triangle


The area of eastern Central Mississippi known as the Golden Triangle will soon be home to a new helicopter air ambulance base.

This week, MedStat EMS announced its plans to establish a base for a MedStat Air medical helicopter at GTR (Golden Triangle Regional Airport).

The new base at GTR will improve access to trauma and critical care to residents of east central Mississippi, according to a spokesman.

Officials have said the Columbus base will cover a 75-mile radius and provide support for ambulance crews in Monroe County.

MedStat EMS is headquartered in Winona, MS. The EMS / air ambulance company already serves nearly 320,000 people in a service area that covers well over 8,000 square miles, according to the company website.

The MedStat EMS helicopter base expansion into the Golden Triangle, which is formed by the cities of Columbus, Starkville, and West Point (and the three counties Lowndes, Oktibbeha, and Clay), will further add to their already wide coverage area.

      Hi Victor, if you are interested in applying for employment with MedStat EMS (or Air), you can apply for a job online and/or contact them through their official website. We don’t personally know of any other air ambulance providers currently based in this region.
