Two helipads in the works for Tulare County hospitals
Visialia Times-Delta

While Kaweah Delta Medical Center is planning to build a helipad above part of its main parking lot next year, Tulare Regional Medical Center has already poured the concrete for its landing pad.

Tulare’s helipad sits on top of a four-story building under construction just south of the main hospital. It’s part of a $95 million expansion that is about 50 percent complete. Shawn Bolouki, chief executive officer, estimates that the helipad alone costs about $500,000.
