I read with interest the story about helicopters and Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center. Instead of razing a historic building, why not land on the hospital? Think about the University of Louisville Medical Center and the University of Kentucky Medical Center. There you would be — right in the hospital — put'em on a gurney and whoosh'em in the door.
The hospital just built an addition, did it not? Didn't anyone think during the planning stages to incorporate a helipad then?
