Commitment to safety and outstanding patient care.
Always ready to respond when it matters most.
Our patient advocates are standing by.
In 1980, Roy Morgan founded Air Methods after a personal experience convinced him that properly-equipped and staffed air medical service helicopters were a must. With one helicopter and a single hospital contract in Colorado, he pledged his commitment to safety and outstanding patient care.
Today, we hold those same values and are always ready to respond when it matters most. Annually, we conduct over 70,000 transports amassing over 150,00 flight hours.
