Could you tell me why so many accident victims are shuttled by ambulance or air when sometimes the accident takes place in close proximity to Lawrence Memorial Hospital?

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical Chief Mark Bradford said the department used only ambulances to transport people to LMH, regardless of the distance from the hospital. The department uses air transport only to take patients to other hospitals, either by patients' choice or to take the patient to a trauma center or another specialty resource not available at LMH.
