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 Children's Hospital Colorado, 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 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.
Flight For Life Colorado, the critical care transport service of Centura Health, and Children’s Hospital Colorado announced plans to expand their critical care transport services to include a new helicopter specially configured to meet the needs of even the tiniest pediatric patients and staffed by nurses and respiratory therapists from the flight crew based at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
