Behind the Scenes: Cedars-Sinai Helipad
Aug 30, 2018 Cedars-Sinai Staff
As a Level 1 trauma center, Cedars-Sinai is required to have a helipad ready 24 hours a day to receive severely injured patients arriving by helicopter.
"When someone sustains injuries that potentially pose a threat to life, rapid field treatment and rapid transport is essential," says Heidi Hotz, Trauma Program manager. "Trauma care is very time-sensitive—every minute counts."
