The Doctor´s Medical Center Air Med Team may get sold.

The hospital in Modesto runs two helicopters, one in the Modesto area, and one based at the Columbia Airport covering the Mother Lode.

The parent company of DMC is Tenet Healthcare, and they´re reporting major financial losses this year.

A spokeswoman says no decisions have made yet, but an Arizona company says they´re negotiating to purchase the air ambulance service DMC has run for ten years.

The deal could be signed in the next few weeks, and the change would take effect January of next year.
