Our LifeFlight team ensures that patients receive high-quality care during aeromedical transport. LifeFlight offers critical care aeromedical service throughout Alaska and to facilities in the Lower 48.

Ours is the only non-military hospital in Alaska where fixed wing aircraft can taxi to the door, saving precious time for our patients.

We have been serving the state of Alaska with medevac service since 1985 - the first in the state to meet the national medevac trends for utilizing flight teams comprised of Registered Nurses and Certified Paramedics.

All LifeFlight teams have critical care experience and receive ongoing, intensive aeromedical training. The LifeFlight crew members are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advance Life Support, Emergency Nurse Pediatric Course, and either Transport Nurse Advanced Trauma Course or Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum.

Year round open access via taxiway from Anchorage's Merrill Field, one of the busiest small plane airports in the nation, facilitates fast and convenient entry to our hospital.
