The helicopter traveled south above the Capital City Freeway and activated the helistop’s perimeter lights before landing. As soon as the copter blades stopped spinning, the pilot gave a thumbs up, signaling all was safe for those waiting inside the Women’s and Children’s Center’s 10th floor – called the vestibule – to come out and greet them.

In April, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento and Calstar are planning four training sessions for nursing, transport and other health-care teams to prepare to receive patients by air when the expanded campus opens Aug. 8. Most of these patients will be preemies and other sick babies who will be flown to Sutter Medical Center’s new, state-of-the-art neonatal intensive care unit inside the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center. The life-saving NICU serves 26 counties throughout Northern California, southern Oregon and western Nevada.
