In 1995, Huntington County Hospital and Parkview Hospital started a partnership that has moved beyond Huntington County. Parkview Huntington Hospital now dispatches the two Samaritan helicopters for Northeast Indiana. Mason will share some of the special services that this partnership has enabled the hospital board to accomplish including updating computer technology, adding highly specialized therapy programs, as well as being housed in a newly constructed building that is designed to incorporate these additions.
