Let's start looking closer at this project. Anyone interested, please add your ideas to the thread.  Right now I'm using P3D 2.5, so there 's no IS3 to start playing with this. But what we can do is identify places where these should be.  If you see a candidate, give us the lat/long and the name of the community or SPB or whatever so we can look at it. I also can imagine a little medical building down by the water, with a helipad, and a pier, ambulance standing by, etc.  If folks are interested, then I'll move the list from here over to a projects table on the FAQ page so everyone can keep up with it.  If we keep the objects simple, I think this is a great idea. Also, keep an eye out for facilities that are already there ... we could list them on the same table, so we'll eventually have a "medicals facilities" table.  From that we can start having some fun with dispatches, etc.  First step, lets find them and get a list. Then we'll start placing a few to see how we like the project.

I am hoping that we add some locations as operation bases in the larger settlements. These should have medical objects for support in the design like ambulances parked nearby. Any signs that are medical in focus. Etc.
I may take on a few places but I'm finishing up my latest scenery creation and won't be able to start on anything for this idea right now. Rods busy up near Seward. How about you Doug? Or Steve? Or anybody new that wants to contribute.

Let's do something for this with a focus on our operations as best we can.

I don't have a lot of scenery experience Brad, but I do have FSX & Instant Scenery 2 installed & I know how to use the Instant Scenery 2.  I'm home right now with some time on my hands between chemo appointments, so I do have the time if someone will guide me along in scenery design and tell me what objects to use.  I'm not sure if IS2 creates BGL's that are P3D compatible though.

It would make a nice distraction from the med issues.  The aircraft painting I usually do can wait, there's plenty of paints out there to use now.

I Google'd "hospital medical facilities in united states canada" and clicked on the Map tab which displayed RW hospitals and health facility and there are few along the northwest coastal areas. If I may suggest, the co-location of medical scenery objects need not be a full-blown trauma center or hospital if its far away from intended RTMM operational SPBs or locations. Default FSX and P3D already have hospitals with landable helipads depending on the autogen setting one has. Smaller, highly visible medical outposts or EMT facilities with a nearby red-marked HEMS helipad/s (on the ground or atop it) with a working windsock, static ambulance/s and/or HEMS helo/s should do it.

Flying a helicopter - the most fun you can have with your hand between your legs and not go blind.

Yes, I think we all are saying, keep it simple. I agree. Also, if we look past putting them up ... what are we going to do with them? Knowing the answer to that question will help us with the construction phase.  There are some out-of-the way communities ... Ocean Falls comes to mind.  In real life, I bet there is a small facility there. We should sort of look into how these "hub" in real life. The Google project was/is a good idea.  I wonder if they have small "trama" centers for local emergencies, then for real problems, the helicopter comes to the helipad just outside the door. But like the one Rod built, these would hub around a larger facility in a bigger community where we could place the hospital object. (just thinkin' out loud).

Bartlett Medical Center - Juneau Alaska

Helipad
FAA Identifier:    AA44
Lat/Long:    58-19-43.6900N / 134-27-36.3000W
58-19.728167N / 134-27.605000W
58.3288028 / -134.4600833
Elevation:    296 ft. / 90 m
From city:    4 miles NW of JUNEAU, AK


If it works anything like it does here in NH, there is a couple of HUGE trauma centers (probably scattered around like Juneau, Sitka, and Ketchikan).  Unless they are local to those trauma centers, patients are taken to the local small hospital to be stabilized, then taken to the larger trauma center.

Surprise ... maybe there are more than we know about?  I looked at Homer and found the South Peninsula Hospital ... complete with hard helipad on the roof. This would serve all of the Homer area. We need to make sure we know where the ones already done are.

OK, taking the project a step further. I've created a new "Project" table for this. It is at the bottom of the Here2There page. You can get to it from the top INDEX at Here2There or see it HERE.

If you want to help us with this project, help us look for medical facilities already in the RTMM scenery areas (PFJ, PNW, Tongass, and SAK).  If you find one and it is not on the project table, give us the lat/long of the facility. (I'll handle the screen shot)  If you send me the Google earth lat/long format it would be helpful (59°39'8.31"N  151°32'59.67"W) ... (I'd rather not convert from "decimal").

If there SHOULD BE a medical facility in a location and one does not exist, send us the name of it, the lat/long and the type it should be. We'll add it to the table, but give it a 'red" status.  Red will mean we have it located, but it is only "proposed."  A yellow status means it is actively under construction and a green status means it is finished.

When we have one "green", we'll be able to click on the location name and be able to see a picture of the facility ... this so people will know what they are looking for later.  I have Homer in there as an example.

Use this thread to add facilities to the project table, attach pics here or you can copy the email address and  send them to "contact@mistymoorings.com" and they'll show up in my inbox.

NOTAM - UPDATED POST - You will see this only if you have HOMER PAYWARE.  So we are taking this off of our project table.

Looking at the Homer area, there is a small SPB 5BL near the South Peninsula Hospital.  Looking closer at the scenery ALREADY THERE, there is a small dock with a windsock on the side of the lake nearest the highway. All we need to do is put an Ambulance there (and a little better dock ... which for me disappears when you near it) and we'd have Homer covered for fixed wing amphibs.  Amazing what we can find with a little poking around. For fun, I added this to the table.

A couple of hospital locations (some with helipads) from me. To view in Google Maps, just click on coordinates. You can, of course, accept or disregard any of them depending on amount of effort you plan to spend on placing the scenery but I've tried to focus primarily on RTMM area:

Annette Island Services Unit
55.126839°, -131.576278°

Soldotna Hospital Heliport
60.492642°, -151.078941°

St Joseph's General Hospital (helipad), Comox, BC
49.675103°, -124.941123°

Alaska Regional Hospital Heliport
61.212330°, -149.826987°

Kenai Health Center
60.558078°, -151.252055°

Central Peninsula Hospital
60.559270°, -151.249911°

Anchorage Medical & Surgical Clinic LLC
61.215384°, -149.902276°

Indian Health Services
55.339844°, -131.636779°
 
PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center
55.353528°, -131.686625°

Bartlett Regional Hospital
58.328820°, -134.465130°

Providence Alaska Medical Center
61.186356°, -149.821253°

Mat-Su (Matanuska) Regional Medical Centre
61.562758°, -149.258552°

Providence Seward Medical and Care Center
60.105144°, -149.446245°

Guys, it's just another wonderful project by RTMM. Let's try to help as much as possible!!! It's for all of us, after all... :)

Doug,
need to re-think the medical locations mentioned in your post.  Apparently you have ORBX Homer PAHO installed because with FSX and SAK there is no hospitial or even a dock in the coordinates you give.  Which by the way need to be corrected because you can not put N59 39 8.31 /  W151 32 59.57 into the FSX map.
N59 39.83  /  151 32.59 is possible as an example.
In any case with default Homer and FSX/SAK the items you mention do not show.  Also in the table under "STATUS" the S Pen. Hosp says PFJ but it is in SAK.
I attach screen shots of the two locations both cockpit and overhead views

Yes, I have Homer Payware installed.  OK, we'll rethink that one. (Damn these payware airports, I wish they would work INSIDE THE FENCE and leave the rest of it alone ... that's twice I've been burned!  I'll pull that one from the Project Table ... there are plenty more to mess with. (Darn!!!)
