Over 25 Years of Service

LifeNet of New York began with the transition of Albany Medical Center's MedFlight program to a community based model in 2002, with the addition of Johnstown in 2003 and the Westchester Medical Center STAT Flight program in 2004. Since that time, LifeNet of New York has grown to 11 critical care flight teams throughout the state. Our helicopters and airplane respond to critically ill and injured patients who require the highest level of pre-hospital care for initial scene response and interfacility transfers.

We are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) - the highest standards in safety, clinical practice, quality assurance, and training in the industry.

The LifeNet of New York program is owned and operated by Air Methods Corporation based in Greenwood Village, Colorado. Air Methods is the leading air medical service, delivering lifesaving care to more than 70,000 people every year. With nearly 40 years of air medical experience, we are the preferred partner for hospitals and one of the largest community-based providers of air medical services. Air Methods’ fleet of owned, leased, or maintained aircraft features more than 450 helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.

Our Beliefs

Safe Returns
Though we celebrate each opportunity to extend and enhance a patient’s life, our greatest celebration is the daily, safe return of each member of our team to their loved ones—this is our highest priority. At times, this may require the courage to stop or not accept a mission due to factors in the moment that exceed what we believe, and have been taught, are unacceptable risks for our team.
Patient Champions
We skillfully and passionately serve those who have unexpectedly found themselves threatened by life’s unforeseen situations. We devote ourselves—safely and prudently—to ensuring patients get our full expertise, resources and focus to preserve and enhance their lives until they are delivered to definitive care. This is at the heart of what we do.

Fiscal Balance
With our passion and commitment to "giving more tomorrows,” comes a balance of ensuring we have the financial wherewithal to do it. Platitudes of greatness and aspiration are empty without the stable, unrelenting focus of the financial integrity of our efforts. This balance is evident of our current success and essential for our future growth.
We believe our greatest accomplishments are not only in the things we do as a company, in general, but more importantly in the day-to-day decisions we make, individually, to do the right thing, to make a difference, to be the strongest link in the performance of our individual duties. We depend on each other to do our best—to have each other’s back—to ensure we are safe, impactful and successful. This is more important than hierarchy, status or personal agenda.
One Mission, One Team
As team members, we celebrate each other’s strengths, abilities and contributions because in total, united, we are better together. We have chosen each other because of our mutual skills of leadership, ingenuity, experience and extraordinary performance: all of which help us be the world’s experts in patient critical care logistics.
