Mediflight pulls out of CCMH

LAWTON, Okla._Mediflight will no longer be serving the Lawton community with a full-time, base operation in town.

This will take effect at the end of the month. The decision was made because frequency of calls requesting air-lift for patients wasn't large enough to keep the hub open.

Comanche County Memorial Hospital said Mediflight, along with other services such as Air Evac, will still be available to serve Southwest Oklahoma. They will just be pulling helicopters from surrounding hubs like Chickasha and Oklahoma City.

The hospital will also continue to pursue other companies for a full-time base operation at CCMH.
