The first civilian hospital-based emergency medical helicopter service in the U.S. started in Denver, Colorado. Today, after more than 84,000 life-saving flights, St. Anthony Hospital’s commitment to providing this critical community asset is as strong as ever.
With support from the St. Anthony Health Foundation, Flight For Life answers the call 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and the patient’s ability to pay is never a question. When minutes mean the difference between life or death, Colorado depends and calls on Flight For Life. Proud of our past and striving for excellence in the future, our dedicated staff will continue to respond to emergencies with life-saving precision and speed.
Flight For Life’s orange helicopters, airplanes, and ground transportation units stand ready in part because of donations from the community.
