    sentara healthcare nightingale

    Sentara Healthcare comprised of 12 hospitals with more than 100 sites of care all throughout Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. Helicopter services were provided by Pegasus and PHI.

    The Nightingale Regional Air Ambulance, operated by Metro Aviation since February 2011 from its base at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (VA88) started in 1982 with a Bell 206L-1. Between 1987 and 2011 operated a Bo105 which was replaced by an EC145 (N145NG) after a two-year campaign by the Sentara Foundation Hampton Roads dubbed Saving Minutes, Saving Lives, which raised $3.5M toward the $7.2M cost. The new helicopter is outfitted with autopilot, night vision, weather radar, obstacle avoidance technology and wire cutters.

    Nightingale was the first hospital-based helicopter ambulance in Virginia and the 38th air ambulance program in the U.S.

    In 2018 conducted 722 total flights, 269 of those about (30 percent), were to northeast North Carolina.
