Hospital heliport prepares for final approval

Just the second STARS Air Ambulance helipad in the province of Manitoba, the Portage District General Hospital heliport saw its final inspection from Transport Canada on Dec. 12.

The Portage la Prairie heliport will see increased use as STARS performs test flights, part of the final certification process.

“Overall, we are very happy with the project outcome,” says Noreen Shirtliff, who has been overseeing the project for Southern Health-Santé Sud. “We are extremely appreciative for the Foundation’s support and grateful to the community at large who really opened their hearts which has helped to bring this project to fruition.”
