Over the past 25 years, LifeFlight has cared for 37,000 patients and the need for our service continues to grow. The reach and relevance of LifeFlight’s mission is more important now than ever before. We safely care for those who are critically ill or injured, while also transporting patients of all ages—from premature infants and critically injured children, to adults and seniors who need specialty care. The calls for help come from all points in Maine—from the mountains to the lakes and coastal islands, from highways, trails, main streets, and, importantly, from hospital to hospital.
LifeFlight helicopters, airplane, and specialty ground ambulances are equipped as fully functioning mobile intensive care units, bringing advanced skills, medical technology, pharmacy, blood, and more—directly to a patient’s side.
Our iconic helicopters provide far more than just critical care transport. For LifeFlight patients, every minute matters. Their chances of survival and quality of life after a traumatic event depends on our ability to safely traverse Maine’s vast expanse, rugged terrain, and challenging weather. Getting a patient quickly into the care of a LifeFlight crew gives them the best chance to “overcome the geography of time.” We make second chances possible.
