UnityPoint Health - LifeFlight

Fort Dodge, IA The UnityPoint Health air ambulance service LifeFlight has placed a new aircraft into service in Fort Dodge to better suit patient needs. While the new aircraft is very similar to the one that has been servicing Fort Dodge for the past year, this one has many upgrades to the interior of the aircraft including: wider loading space, increased storage and a layout to better accommodate pediatric and cardiac patients with special equipment.


“UnityPoint Health LifeFlight is committed to meeting the needs of the community, providing the best outcome, every patient, every time and we continue to evolve our services to meet that need,” said Michael Zweigart CFRN, CMTE, Manager, UnityPoint Health - LifeFlight.


Probably the most notable change with the new aircraft is that is branded with UnityPoint Health blue and white.


UnityPoint Health - LifeFlight serves an eight county region around Fort Dodge for both adult and pediatric trauma and medical needs. The crew is made up of pediatric RN’s, Adult RN’s and Critical Care Paramedics. To date, over 300 patients have been transported to Iowa City, Des Moines, Rochester, Sioux City and Omaha from the Fort Dodge location.
