MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -

For 30 years the LIFE STAR helicopter has been associated with Hartford, but there will be a new home for the aircraft.

A new hangar will be built at MidState Medical Center in Meriden.

The medical chopper will be stationed there beginning on Aug. 7.

The move is expected to help better serve the communities and enables LIFE STAR to reach even more patients around the state.

Currently there are LIFE STAR hangars at Hartford Hospital and Backus Hospital in Norwich.
