Airlift Northwest

Video about Airlift Northwest 

At Airlift Northwest, we believe that all people deserve high-quality critical care, no matter where they are.​

As the Pacific Northwest’s premier air ambulance service, we are honored to serve the communities of our region, flying 3,800 patients a year, and over 100,000 since our founding 36 years ago. 

We are an entity of UW Medicine, and proud to partner with Harborview Medical Center’s Transfusion Services to offer blood products on all of our aircraft in Washington and Alaska​​.

We Help Save Lives

We handle everything from advanced cardiac life support to neonatal resuscitation, all while flying patients to the most advanced care available.

Airlift Northwest responds from one of seven bases — located strategically throughout the Pacific Northwest and Southeast Alaska.

AirCare Program​

Airlift Northwest is pleased to offer AirCare Membership, a program that provides residents of Washington and Alaska with financial peace of mind at an affordable price. AirCare Membership protects you and your family members from the unexpected costs of air transport during a medical emergency. Lifesaving air medical transport can be expensive and insurance may not cover all costs.​​
