Pampa Gets Lifestar

Lifestar now has a new base in Pampa.

The medical helicopter will be housed at the Pampa Regional Medical Center, with its home base being Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo.

The Lifestar coordinator says most satellite bases are within 70 to 80 miles of its home base.

He also says they picked Pampa because the northeast region of the panhandle is one of the most populous.

Right now, the chopper is operating out of Amarillo but will start operations out of Pampa on March 2nd.
