Boston MedFlight is a world renowned, critical care transport program established in 1985 by a consortium of Boston's leading academic medical centers. For almost three decades, the founding institutions have partnered together to create and sustain a regional critical care transport system focused on patient care excellence, high reliability and safety.
Our partnerships are many community hospitals, pre-hospital providers — including fire departments and EMS services — as well as other air medical programs across the region. Our primary commitment is to collaboratively work alongside our partners to always deliver safe, reliable and patient focused critical care transport.
