• Flight For Life Colorado expresses our profound gratitude for the tremendous outpouring of support, prayers and condolences, following the helicopter crash at St. Anthony Summit Medical Center on July 3.

    Flight For Life Colorado continues to appreciate the wonderful outpouring of condolences, love, and support shown to us. We have truly felt it with every hug, card, word of encouragement, participation processions, offerings of food, flowers and plants, and donations.

    We are pleased to share that after a stay at St. Anthony and Craig Hospitals, Flight Nurse Matt Bowe has returned home where he will continue his rehabilitation.

    Flight Nurse Dave Repsher remains in the expert hands of the University of Colorado Hospital Burn ICU staff.

    Flight For Life is cooperating with the NTSB and FAA as they work to determine the cause of the crash. Although there has been much speculation, these two entities are the only two credentialed to determine the cause of the crash.  

    As we continue to navigate post-crash realities and challenges, we appreciate your ongoing support and well wishes. It is clear to us that the best way to honor our pilot, Patrick Mahany, is to continue on with our mission, which was so incredibly important to him.

    We have been asked often which funding site is best for the crewmember’s families; the St. Anthony Hospital Health Foundation and Flight For Life Colorado have facilitated a GoFundMe account set up at www.gofundme.com/flightforlifeco. If you prefer to write a check, please mail to St. Anthony Health Foundation, Attn: Meg Nicolet, 11600 W 2nd Place Denver, CO 80228. *It is important the check be made out to “FirstBank – Flight For Life Families”.

    Thank you again; our hearts are broken from our loss, but full with the tremendous show of human kindness.  

  • 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.

    The first hospital-based air ambulance in the country, 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.
