CEO Maura Hughes on Nantucket Radio
Boston MedFlight transports approximately 300 patients a year from Nantucket, more than one per day during the summer months. CEO Maura Hughes discusses our nonprofit mission on the island on 97.7 ACK-FM.
For 35 years, Boston MedFlight has been the region’s primary provider of critical care medical transport by air and ground, caring for more than 4,700 patients annually, including the most critically ill and injured infants, children and adults. As a nonprofit organization, we provide over $4 million annually in free and unreimbursed care to patients in need with little or no medical insurance.
Our air and ground vehicles serve as mobile ICUs, staffed by a critical care nurse and critical care paramedic. Boston MedFlight is a key part of the region’s healthcare system – collaborating with first responders, community hospitals and academic medical centers.
