LifeFlight Needs Additional Aircraft to Meet the Needs of Mainers

As requests from physicians continue to increase, LifeFlight has reached the capacity of its two helicopters.  In 2012 our crews transported more than 1,500 patients from every corner of the state to specialty hospitals in Maine, Boston, and beyond. LifeFlight is becoming increasingly important to our community hospitals to support critically ill and injured patients with additional staff and advanced technology. As the cost of healthcare continues to spiral up and community hospitals find it difficult to provide specialized services, the role of LifeFlight will continue to grow. To serve everyone who would benefit from our service, we must expand our fleet.

This inspiring and powerful event was an effort to raise funds and awareness for LifeFlight of Maine, and saw the shores of Islesboro lined with well-wishers cheering the swimmers to the finish.
