AirLink in the Sky

Our helicopters are ready to fly 24/7. AirLink 1 and AirLink 2 are strategically based to cover all of Southeastern North Carolina. AirLink can care for critical and injured patients who need to be transferred from one facility to another or who need immediate evacuation from the site of an incident.

VitaLink on the Road

VitaLink is NHRMC's rolling intensive care unit, the vehicle that delivers care to and transports the most distressed patients. If a patient needs to be transferred to our neonatal ICU, VitaLink is equipped with the medical equipment and staff to get them there quickly and safely. Our fleet of vehicles includes a pediatric ambulance with special equipment and specially trained staff to transport infants and children to and from our pediatric and neonatal intensive care units.
