Situated between Denver and Salt Lake City, St. Mary’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Grand Junction, CO, is a major medical services provider for the people of western Colorado and eastern Utah. Hospital officials take that responsibility seriously and do what they can to help those with acute needs receive required care as quickly as possible. And in today’s world, there’s no quicker mode of transportation than the air ambulance.
St. Mary’s maintains two air ambulances, one a helicopter and the other a fixed-wing craft. Together they average about 900 flights per year. These assets are of the highest quality and are meticulously maintained because their dependability in an emergency could quite literally mean the difference between life and death.
Though its role is clearly limited to a single moment in the emergency care chain, the hangar door’s dependable operation is nonetheless vital. That’s why officials used a bifold hangar door from Schweiss Doors of Fairfax, MN. It was installed as part of the hangar’s construction.
