The new helipad at Floyd Medical Center will officially be dedicated Thursday afternoon during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The helipad sits at the North Second Avenue entrance to the Emergency Care Center and has direct elevator access to trauma bays.
It replaces Atrium Health Floyd’s helipad, which was on Riverside Parkway about 1.5 miles from the hospital.
Thursday’s ribbon-cutting will begin at 3:15 p.m.
