I noticed on Flightaware that a Pinnacle CRJ en route from CLE-MSP diverted to MKE but then re-diverted here to MSN. Does anyone have access to the reason for the diversion?

Thanks!

Did they go to MSN because the hospitals in Madison are better than in Milwaukee?  Wink


Where have all the tri-jets gone...

HAHAHA

As a surgeon in Madison, I can vouch for the fact that our Milwaukee colleagues and respective hospitals are excellent, as well.

Hope the patient and family are OK.

I think any major city has atleast 1 great hospital. Milwaukee has Froedert for their heart care, but its too far from MKE compared to UW Hospital for MSN. CLE has the Cleveland Clinic, RST has Mayo Clinic, etc...... I wouldn't bash any city in this that one city has better facilities than another.

Prayers to the patient and family.

St. Luke's Medical Center is one of the finest Heart hospitals in the nation, and has a very large Cardiac medical/surgical CCU's anywhere I know of. It also was the location of the first heart transplant in Wisconsin & the place the Jarvivc artificial heart was invented. I'm a retired Paramedic from the Milwaukee area and St. Luke's is a 12 minute ride from MKE non emergency transport. And as for UW-Madison Hospital it is at least a 20 minute transport running HOT. I would think Meriter Hospital would be at least 10 minutes closer, which has a good cardiac center as well. As to why the switch from MKE to MSN don't have a clue.  Smile

While I'm partial to the MSN area, I have a sneaking suspicion that the flight crew, dispatch, flight attendant, etc. were not debating the merits of the various medical institutions in either city when determining where to set down the flight. I would imagine it's a matter of getting on the ground and get the guy medical attention ASAP--regardless of where it is located.

I would guess that MKE is the preferred alternate as it is a pretty big station for NW, making it easier to get the plane checked out or get the pax on other flights. Or, flying the further distance to MKE may have put the plane under MLW. It may have become apparent that the sick passenger could not wait to get to MKE and the crew elected to put down in MSN.

That's just my speculation though.

Bingo.

They may also have figured that once on the ground, it'd be quicker to get to the gate/get the passenger off in MSN.

I heard probable heart attack, though apparently there were convulsions as well. He did walk off the A/C, though...
