The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems will conduct an accreditation site visit of Flight for Life Colorado, Inc. on March 5-7, 2014.
The purpose of the site visit will be to evaluate the program’s compliance with nationally established medical transport standards. The site visit results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which accreditation should be awarded to the program.
CAMTS accreditation standards deal with issues of patient care and safety of the transport environment. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent or valid information about such matters may request a public information interview with the CAMTS site surveyors at the time of the site visit.
Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests for public information interviews must be made in writing and sent to CAMTS no later than 5 business days before the site survey begins. The request should also indicate the nature of the information to be provided during the interview. Such request should be addressed to:
Office of the Executive Director
Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems
PO Box 130
Sandy Springs, SC 29677
The Commission will acknowledge such written requests in writing or by telephone and will inform the program of the request for an interview. The Commission will, in turn, notify the interviewee of the date, time and place of the meeting. This notice is posted in accordance with CAMTS requirements and shall not be removed until the site visit is completed. Date

Flight For Life® Colorado - Air Medical Transport
Across the Rocky Mountain Region
Flight For Life® Colorado provides critical care transport with five helicopters (operating within a 120-mile radius of our four Colorado operations bases), three ambulances and three airplanes. Equipped with the industry's most current technology and experienced, knowledgeable team, we transport patients across several states in the Rocky Mountain Region and assist search and rescue agencies with specialized services including aerial search support and our Avalanche Deployment Program.
Flight For Life® Colorado began in 1972 with a single Alouette III helicopter, based at St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver and was the first hospital-based air ambulance program in the United States. From its humble beginnings, it has grown to be a regional air medical and critical care transport program responding to nine states in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Flight For Life® Colorado transports patients to the most appropriate hospital, operating within the Colorado trauma system rules for trauma patients. Our most frequent destination is The Children's Hospital in Denver, but patients are also transported to several hospitals along the front range and the western slope. We assist many search and rescue agencies and offer specialized services to them including aerial search support and our avalanche rescue programs. Our transport capabilities include the specialty areas of neonatal, high risk obstetrical, intraaortic balloon pump and mountain rescue transports.
When a patient is in need of emergent transport financial status is not a consideration, and Flight Flight For Life® Colorado responds regardless of the patient's ability to pay. Because of this, and the high costs of our aviation services, our operating expenses are high. We depend on corporate and private donations to support our capital equipment needs.
