Mountain Area Medical Airlift (MAMA)

The need for emergency transportation in the region is immediate. As an extension of all regional hospitals, the Hospital for Advanced Medicine will act as an epicenter for all critical care access. Designed for fast-access, MAMA will land on top of the Hospital for Advanced Medicine and a dedicated elevator will directly connect patients to the specialty they need.

MAMA and more dedicated EMS capability coupled with the Hospital for Advanced Medicine will increase speed and access to care for Highlands-Cashiers patients when they need it most.
