Airlift Northwest transports those in greatest need to wherever they need to go to receive definitive care. They put the lifesaving discoveries of UW Medicine in the air and into action to better safeguard patients’ lives.

When you or a family member are seriously ill or injured, the attending physician or emergency response team may determine that air medical transport is needed. In those cases, you may request Airlift Northwest.
