Basic to Intermediate Northern Air Medevac Service, is a health care enhancement to the residents located within the Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region. Our service provides medical evacuation for patients requiring non-critical/life threatening interventions that are provided by Saskatchewan Air Ambulance and/or STARS. Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region works collaboratively with Pat Campling (Owner/Operator of Transwest Air), Deb Wrightson (Marketing Manager) and Heather McGonigal (Director of Flight Operations) in achieving, executing and improving our Medevac Service.
