Superior Air Med returns to the Metro Family
June 11, 2021
Superior Air-Ground Ambulance Service is returning to the Metro Family of operations customers this summer, beginning with two new medically-equipped Learjet 45 fixed-wing aircraft for organ procurement and patient transport services. In July, Superior will stand up a new base with Metro Aviation with an Airbus EC135 in Waukesha, WI. A few months later, Metro will assume operations of Superior’s current EC135 Illinois-based operations in West Chicago and Kankakee.
“We are very happy to be returning to the Metro family. As we grow our air division with the addition of two jets for organ procurement/medical transports, and adding a third helicopter base, it was important that we partner with an organization who shares our values,” said Cherie Leigh Pepping, Executive Director, Critical Care Services Superior Air-Ground Ambulance Service, Inc.
Launched in 2007, Superior’s CAMTS-accredited air ambulance division, Superior Air Med, provides critical care in the air with an onboard paramedic and nurse to Chicago and its surrounding communities and northwest Indiana.
“We are excited to be rejoining forces with Superior Air Med,” said Metro COO Kenny Morrow. “We helped launch Superior Air Med in 2007 and are working hard to begin fixed-wing operations in June, as well as help Superior Air Med expand to Wisconsin in July.”
