CareFlight Program

Flight Nurses

We are the leading health care system in Southwest Ohio, by pioneering a higher standard of health care, through combining today's innovation and clinical excellence with uncompromising personalized care.

When it comes to trauma and other life-threatening conditions, every second counts. CareFlight is an air-medical transport service and mobile intensive care ground service that provides fast access to critical care for severely-injured or ill patients. CareFlight has been an icon in the community for more than 30 years. It began as the first air medical program in the region and only the 65th civilian air ambulance program in the nation to fly critically ill or injured patients. Today, CareFlight Air and Mobile Services has grown to Four helicopters, Six ground Mobile Intensive Care Units (MICU), and a team of more than 150 professionals dedicated to the health and safety of those who need immediate medical care and swift transport.

CareFlight’s team includes a Medical Director, Pilots (all with experience flying military helicopters), Flight Nurses, MICU Paramedics, MICU EMT drivers, Mechanics, and Communication Specialists. Since 1983, the team has served more than 200 hospitals, more than 700 fire and police departments and completed more than 74,000 flights.

Working closely with local EMS squads and referring community hospitals, CareFlight provides the fastest air medical transport in the region. Those transported to Miami Valley Hospital (MVH), the region’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, include cardiac, surgical, obstetrical, pediatric, neonatal, and other critical care patients.

CareFlight’s helicopters are maintained and operated by Air Methods Corp, and the program has been accredited since 1994 by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS).
