Flight for Life Colorado's New Air Ambulance Serving Smallest Patients
The organization's new Airbus H130 T2 is specially configured to meet the needs of pediatric patients.
Flight For Life Colorado has a new helicopter in service that is outfitted specially to accommodate pediatric patients. FFLC provide critical care transport service for the Denver region and had announced last fall that it would expand its fleet with a new Airbus H130 T2 dedicated for the exclusive use of the Flight For Life team based at Children's Colorado and provide transportation to children within its 120-mile service area.
The aircraft is staffed by nurses and respiratory therapists from the flight crew based at Children's Colorado.
"Flight For Life Colorado pioneered the hospital-based critical air transport industry at St. Anthony Hospital in 1972, and we have worked closely with Children's Colorado since 1997," Kathleen Mayer, director of Flight For Life Colorado, said in October 2016. "To work with Children's Colorado to expand and strengthen our partnership and commitment to the community to deliver exceptional care during transport is most gratifying to all of us at Centura Health."
