McALESTER — Steven Stanfield has joined Air Evac Lifeteam as a flight nurse for the McAlester base.

Stanfield received his nursing degree from Eastern Oklahoma State College and has been a registered nurse since 1994.

Before coming to Air Evac, Stanfield worked in the emergency department at McAlester Regional Hospital for 14 years.

"I chose to come to Air Evac because I had decided it was time for a career change," he explained. "I had enjoyed working with the Air Evac flight crew at the hospital for several years and felt it was a good opportunity to take a new career path and stay close to home."

Stanfield and his wife Elizabeth have three children. They reside in McAlester.
