Welcome to Life Flight
Illinois' Busiest Air Care Provider
The Life Flight program is an air medical service performing inter-hospital transfers and transfers of critically injured patients from scenes of emergencies. With over 2,200 patient air transfers every year, the program is the busiest of its kind in the state, serving central Illinois within a 150-mile radius of OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois. At the scene and on the way, our highly trained Life Flight nurses and Flight Paramedics perform emergency medical procedures.
To serve more patients and provide even faster access to emergency care, we have two helicopters and four helipads at OSF Saint Francis. We are committed to maintaining the highest level of care and safety standards for the safety of every patient, our crews and the communities we serve.
