Trident Medical Center recently opened their brand new helipad which will cut off precious minutes of time between patients arriving at the hospital and actually making it inside.

The old helipad was located across the street from the medical center, across four lanes of traffic at Charleston Southern University. Transport time had been clocked at up to 15 minutes.

The new landing site is strategically located only yards away from the hospital entrance.

The Summerville Journal Scene has the story and photos.
