To date, Survival Flight has safely transported over 57,000 patients. Patients are taken from accident scenes and hospitals; by rotor-wing, fixed-wing and ground ambulance to tertiary care facilities across Michigan and throughout North America. Patient ages run the life-span and as such, flight crew capabilities must address caring for all age groups, all patient populations at all levels of acuity.
Safe patient transport is the cornerstone of Survival Flight's operation. It encompasses everything that we do, on every leg of transport. It does not end until a patient is at the destination facility and the transport crew is fully prepared for the next mission. Transport is a team endeavor, reliant upon many groups including referring and receiving staff, security personnel, aviation, maintenance, public safety, and communications and dispatch centers.
