In 2005, PHI Air Medical created Air Med 12 as part of a larger vision of transforming the existing landscape of air medical services in Texas. The first and only air medical program serving the Brazos Valley region, Air Med 12 became part of CHI St. Joseph Health in 2012. 

CHI St. Joseph Health continues to grow its air medical line in partnership with PHI Air Medical, one of the country’s leading providers of air medical transport. In 2019, the partnership acquired a twin-engine Airbus H135 EC-135P2+ helicopter, enhancing the team’s operational capabilities and elevating its standard of air medical care.
