Does any Seminole County Officials read anything about how ORMC's Air Care has continually lost territory to Air Methods. The service they provide is old and out-dated. Many consider it a sub-standard service. They do not offer the highest level of care possible. Life saving surgical procedures can be performed but they choose to wait until they get to their teaching hospital to perform any such treatment. That's where the medical students are waiting to work on you, rather than on scene or in flight. Air Methods' Lifenet service provides some of the highest level of care in the country and they even carry blood in the event you are bleeding to death. Wake up and smell the coffee, if it were you or your loved one who would you want coming to get you a flying hearse or a flying trauma unit?
