Their generous donations, along with millions more from other donors and community groups, funded the 16,000 square-foot, $5.8 million state-of-the-art facility. |

A second AirCare helicopter is based in Meridian. For more information about AirCare and the state's only level one trauma center, go to http://umc.edu.
