IHS approves expansion of air ambulance program
The Indian Health Service has approved the expansion of an air ambulance program that serves tribes in the Great Plains.

The South Dakota-based Private Air Shuttle Services Network started on the Pine Ridge Reservation in January 2007. PASSNet now has approval to pick up patients on any reservation in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa.

The program will first expand to the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.
