CareFlight Air and Mobile Transport

When patients are experiencing trauma, heart attack, stroke, or other life-threatening conditions, speed of care can make all the difference. CareFlight is a medical air and ground transport service that provides rapid access to critical care for severely-injured or ill patients. The most critically-injured or ill patients are transported to Miami Valley Hospital’s Level I Trauma Center, the only one in the region, for a wide range of specialty emergency care.

CareFlight Air Transportation

CareFlight’s four Dauphin helicopters are available 24 hours a day, and are typically airborne only minutes after a call is received. Each helicopter is equipped to safely carry the pilot, two nurses and two patients at up to 180 miles per hour, making them the fastest in the Greater Dayton region. CareFlight’s helicopters are based at three locations – Miami Valley Hospital, Lebanon-Warren County Airport, and  Urbana-Grimes AirportLearn more.

CareFlight Mobile

In addition to four helicopters, CareFlight Air and Mobile has six ambulances outfitted as mobile intensive care units (MICUs), that are used for ground transportation of critically-ill patients. The MICUs are fully-equipped intensive care units that are in service around the clock. The MICUs are able to serve patients in a 75-mile radius from Shaw Emergency and Trauma Center at Miami Valley Hospital. The units are based at Miami Valley Hospital, Miami Valley Hospital North , Miami Valley Hospital South, and Jamestown Emergency Department. Learn more.
