"If you can help, you must act. This is how we began, with the deeply held conviction that lifesaving care is a human right for everyone, everywhere, young and old."
After a tragic house fire in Sitka, Alaska claimed the lives of three children, Dr. Michael Copass, then director of emergency services at Harborview Medical Center and Medic One, founded our region’s first air medical transport service in 1982. We now have 8 bases strategically located throughout Washington and Southeast Alaska, flying 3,800 patients a year.
That same founding passion fuels Airlift Northwest today. Pushing ourselves to be the ultimate partners in critical care, we bring everything we have, every time.
