Default Medical Helicopter frequencies

Does anyone know what the frequencies are that Survival Flight out of St. Joseph Hospital and Med Flight out of University of Mich Hospital use.

Helicopter to Hospital
Helicopter to their base
Helicopter to Helicopter
Helicopter to Metro or Willow Run tower
Heicopter to other

I know they sometimes use the fire dept. that has requested them.
Are the frequencies 800 Mhz digtal (Mich State Police) or (Washtenaw County or other.

Thanks

If either comes through/over DTW, the west tower frequency is 135.0 and the east tower frequency is 118.4. They usually have helicopters fly over runway 27R/9L. Also, for Wayne County EMS units requesting air ambulances, HEMS can patch the service to any of HEMS's frequencies or talkgroups.

You may here medical helicopters from out of your areas on those frequencies also. I hear helicopters from other areas now and then on 155.400 here in Grand Rapids when they are coming into Spectrum Health downtown. A few weeks ago there was a helicopter from out of the area on the pad at the hospital and Aero-Med dispatch was letting Aero-Med know how soon they would be taking off. And today I heard Aero-Med dispatch telling a helicopter to wave as they flew by on their way home, but I didn't hear where the helicopter was from. I live close to the airport here in Grand Rapids and hear Aero-Med flying over my apartment all the time.

N912NF - Northflight Mitsubishi MU-2B

NorthFlight Operations: 155.160 PL 71.9
NorthFlight Tactical: 155.400 PL ???.?

Berrien County is served mostly by West Michigan Aircare, out of Kalamazoo (Borgess and Bronson). See www.aircare.org for service info.
