UNC AirCare Helicopter
A partnership with UNC Health Care offers 24-hour-a-day helicopter service to Fayetteville and the surrounding area. UNC AirCare rests on the helipad on the front lawn of Cape Fear Valley Medical Center when it is not busy flying to the scene of serious accidents or picking up a critically ill patient from area hospitals.
In its first year of operation, AirCare transported 366 patients from Fayetteville and responded to 68 local accidents. The citizens of the Cape Fear Region are well served to have a local helicopter service linking them to our regional healthcare facility, as well as with tertiary facilities such as UNC Health Care.
