East Care Turns Twenty

Look who's turning twenty. University Health Systems of Eastern Carolina is celebrating two decades of East Care helicopter service and will soon add their third chopper to its fleet. Pitt County Memorial Hospital officials, city leaders, and other invited guests gathered Thursday morning to honor the men and women who make up the East Care helicopter and ambulance staff. Although the third helicopter hasn't arrived yet, it will immediately be put into service helping to cover the 29 Eastern Carolina counties.
