Boston MedFlight: Your Life, Our Mission ~ Breaking Ground for a New Facility and Holding a Reunion for Patients and Families

By John Laferriere

If you’ve ever seen a news story about a seriously injured person being flown by helicopter to a Boston area hospital, you were probably watching Boston MedFlight in action. Most of us don’t think about emergency medical transport until we see it happening, and even then, we may only have the vaguest idea of how these emergency services operate. Boston MedFlight was founded in 1985 through a collaborative effort of six of Boston’s leading medical centers, and is currently based on Hanscom Air Force Base, with additional bases in Lawrence and Plymouth MA. They are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization providing critical care transport to the most severely ill or injured patients throughout the region.
