The Roper Helipad officially opened this month and is the first helipad in the state to be directly on top of the hospital. Not only does this shorten the time from pad to emergency room or cath lab by 15-20 minutes, but it is also considered a huge asset to the community. One of the pilots to recently use the helipad said, “I have landed on hundreds of roof top helipads and you have the best one I have seen. Great access, great design and great location. It can be used from any direction.”
Congratulations to the LS3P/ADC/DWG design team through the 7+ years of studies and execution!
