Murray Hospital to Add Helipad

Murray, KY – Murray-Calloway County Hospital is adding a helipad to their grounds. The hospital says it plans to build a new 50 square-foot landing pad for medical helicopters. It will be located just outside of its new Emergency Department when the expansion is complete in January. Currently, helicopters transporting patients land in the parking lot of Murray State University's Football Stadium. The new addition will cut out transport via ambulance to and from MSU for the 50-or-so patients transported each year.
