LifeFlight Air Ambulance Services
For several decades UnityPoint Health - Trinity Regional Medical Center partnered with LifeFlight in Des Moines to bring rapid air transport for critically-ill and injured patients. In response to a need for improved emergency transportation services to north central Iowa, in June of 2015, LifeFlight established an expansion base at Trinity in Fort Dodge to provide air ambulance services 24/7 to the Trinity Regional Medical Center region.
The ability to stabilize and transport patients as quickly as possible is critical, which is why LifeFlight and its crew can be instrumental during life-threatening situations. In addition to providing transport from an emergency scene, LifeFlight also transports between hospitals if a patient is in need of specialized medical or surgical treatment.
LifeFlight was the first air ambulance service in central Iowa and since that time has continued to grow and specialize in order to provide the most experienced and specialized care available for our community.
