Consortium

For over three decades, six consortium hospitals have worked together to provide critically ill and injured patients with the advanced level of care they require; relying on Boston MedFlight as their lifeline. There is no other program in the United States that features this type of collaboration. Boston MedFlight coordinates with these leading medical centers, putting all competition aside, to make the very best decision for the patient. His or her interests are always considered above and before everything else. Our daily mission is to provide the right vehicle to the right patient at the right time and transport them to the right facility. In early 2017, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center joined the Boston MedFlight consortium after working together for many years.  LHMC represents the first new addition to the Consortium since inception of Boston MedFlight.
 

“For the last 30 years Boston MedFlight has been an incredible resource for providing critical care transport for the consortium of Boston hospitals. This has allowed the capability of the tertiary hospitals in Massachusetts – including Massachusetts General Hospital – to provide their unique capabilities not only to the citizens of New England but also throughout the world. This relatively unique consortium model emulates my own hospital’s mission – to not only provide excellence in patient care but to also provide education to the next generation of critical care transport providers and research to constantly improve the patient experience. I look forward to continuing the relationship for years to come.”

“Boston Medical Center has relied on Boston MedFlight for nearly 30 years to bring us those patients who need the highest level of critical care. Our partnership goes well beyond patient transport and emergent care by providing our region with comprehensive and coordinated services. At Boston Medical Center we are proud to provide Exceptional Care. Without Exception. And our collaboration with Boston MedFlight helps us to do just that.”
