How often is the helipad used at Lawrence Memorial Hospital?

The hospital hasn't kept a running total of the landings at the helipad, which was built last April. However, Janice Early-Weas, director of community relations at LMH, said the emergency room has recorded 61 helicopter flights since April. Based on that total and figures from the LifeFlight and LifeStar helicopter services, Early-Weas said it is used about five times a month, mostly to transfer patients to other hospitals.
