To our Neighbors:
A Medical Review Committee meets twice a year to review all emergency medical landings at Children's. (*Explanation of diagnosis on back page.) This committee includes two representatives from the neighborhoods surrounding Children's, the director of the Seattle-King County Department of Public Health, two physicians independent of Children's and key medical leadership from Children's Hospital.
The committee continues to find that the vast majority of these emergency medical landings, which are based on medical criteria, are justified. We continue to evaluate each situation to determine whether a safe alternative to the landing is available.
A report to the community about emergency medical helicopter landings at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center / a summary of flight activity is published quarterly by Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center, Seattle WA. If you have comments or questions, please call Suzanne Petersen, Director Community, Government Affairs and Advocacy, at (206) 526-2125; or write her at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center, P.O. Box 5371, CH-01, Seattle, WA 981015-0371.
