Air ambulance company cuts ribbon on new Somerset base

The Lake Cumberland Regional Airport’s newest tenant is PHI Air Medical, according to a report in the Commonwealth Journal in Somerset.

Known by many as one of the two most frequently used air ambulances in the region, PHI has been serving the Lake Cumberland area up until now from either its London or Monticello bases.

Now, PHI has a new Somerset-area base, made possible by a collaboration with the airport’s board and the Somerset-Pulaski Economic Development Authority.

PHI will care for high-trauma patients, heart attack patients, stroke patients or those with a high-risk pregnancy, among other emergencies.
