Sentara Nightingale Regional Air Ambulance moves to the roof, adopts IFR routes

Sentara Nightingale Regional Air Ambulance transitioned from its original ground helipad at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital to a rooftop array 296 feet above grade

on May 1, 2019. The new rooftop site includes a 45’ x 45’ pad exclusively for Nightingale and an adjacent 65’ x 65’ pad for other air ambulances in the region and U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy helicopters, which called at the hospital 21 times in 2018.

“It’s safer for us and the public to take off and land from the roof,” says Denise Baylous, program manager and flight nurse. “The ground pad is flanked by the hospital and a medical office building which creates a swirling effect that buffets the helicopter on windy days.”
