MD Helicopters announced the delivery of a newly converted MD 902 Explorer to Springfield, Missouri-based CoxHealth. Previously operated by the Dutch Police and the United States Coast Guard as an MD 900, the aircraft was upgraded at MDHI’s Mesa, Arizona Factory Service Center via the company’s exclusive MD 900-to-902 Upgrade program, and delivered as a certified MD 902 with full factory warranty. This helicopter is the second to join the CoxHealth family. “This helicopter is absolutely perfect for meeting our EMS/air ambulance needs,” said Susan Crum, RN, Cox Air Care Program Director. “Not only does the MD 902 offer excellent maneuverability and increased safety for our in-flight medical teams and the patients we serve, it also delivers unmatched reliability and low operating costs, allowing us to meet both patient care and operational objectives with ease.” CoxHealth first chose the MD Explorer as its EMS/air ambulance platform in 2007. With this latest acquisition, CoxHealth has standardized its growing fleet on the proven MD platform, reinforcing their commitment to deliver operational economies alongside improved patient care.
