LifeFlight Provides Critical Care Transport Throughout Maine

LifeFlight’s vision for Maine is a place in which every person, in every community, has access to critical care and medical transport when they need it.

We do this by working with our EMS partners to transform the critical care transport medicine system into an integrated, high quality, patient-centered system worthy of the public’s trust.

We work with our parent organizations, Central Maine Healthcare and Eastern Maine Healthcare, and our aviation operator, SevenBar Aviation, to achieve this mission and maintain a strong commitment to safety.

Maine to welcome LifeFlight's new, third helicopter in May

With its long sea-faring history, Maine has launched—and is still launching—many fine vessels from its coastal boatyards. Last week, our state had reason to celebrate another kind of launch, that of LifeFlight’s new third helicopter. The aircraft will soon be commissioned at its “home port” at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

LifeFlight, Maine's nonprofit emergency medical helicopter service, is different than for-profit counterparts

Over the last several months, multiple media stories have noted the high costs and rapid increase in charges by for-profit emergency air ambulance helicopter services across the country.  Most recently, the May issue of Consumer Reports highlighted the problems with for-profit air ambulance companies’ business practices in an article titled, Air Ambulances: Taking Patients for a Ride.
