Expert and Compassionate Emergency and Critical Care Medical Transport by Air and Ground

Boston MedFlight is a nonprofit organization that provides transport to the sickest of the sick, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.

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.
