To achieve our vision to provide everyone in Maine with access to the critical care transport they need, when they need it, LifeFlight has been working toward an integrated transport system.
An integrated medical transport system that serves the entire state requires multiple strategies—helicopters, ground ambulances and fixed wing aircraft. Each vehicle has different capabilities and limitations, and together they provide a comprehensive solution.
The common element is LifeFlight’s critical care medical team and equipment, essentially bringing the specialized regional medical center directly to the patient. The bottom line, an integrated transport system means LifeFlight can care for hundreds more patients every year.
