DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Iowa will now have a third AirCare helicopter. The announcement was made today in Dubuque by leaders of Mercy Medical Center and University of Iowa Health Care. The helicopter will be called AirCare 3 and will be stationed in Dubuque beginning in early 2016.

AirCare also has helicopter ambulance services in Iowa City and Waterloo.

Since 1979, more than 30,000 patients have flown with AirCare. University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics operates Iowa’s busiest helipad, with an average of 2,500 landings and takeoffs each year.
