When Boston MedFlight is part of your care team, no matter the circumstance, you can be assured that we bring what you need most: excellence and expertise in patient care with safe and efficient transport of the most critically ill patients.

Our Clinicians

Highly-trained and experienced critical care nurses and critical care paramedics are on every transport we conduct, and are prepared to treat patients ranging from the smallest 500 gram premature babies to our oldest citizens. Our nurses and paramedics have, on average, over 15 years of critical care experience. The foundation of our clinical quality program is close collaboration with our receiving internationally-renowned academic medical centers. From ongoing clinical rotations by our teams in the various hospital areas, to close physician medical oversight and review of transport cases, Boston MedFlight is dedicated to remaining the premier critical care transport organization in the region and country. One of the hallmarks of this dedication is the Boston MedFlight support for a Chief Medical Officer, Associate Chief Medical Officer and seven Associate Medical Directors – a level of dedication to clinical excellence very rarely seen in modern critical care transportation.
