Located atop the roof of the new parking structure, Henry Mayo's new life-saving helipad will resume services after a six year hiatus allowing for improved access to trauma services for individuals impacted by life-threatening injury or illness.  helipad 3


The new temporary location for the helipad is slated for completion at the end of April, 2011, and will accommodate Air Medical Transport directly to Henry Mayo's trauma center until a permanent helipad is constructed atop the new patient tower.   It will allow critically injured patients to stay in their local community near their families and loved ones.


The helipad will also allow Henry Mayo to retain its designation as the only trauma center in the Santa Clarita Valley and will help save lives when seconds can mean the difference between life and death, health and disability.
