Life Flight Network, PeaceHealth Oregon Network renew first call agreement

Life Flight Network and PeaceHealth Oregon Network have renewed a First Call Agreement, the companies said.

The agreement improves patient care and operational efficiency for patients at hospitals in Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove, and Florence, Oregon, who need ICU level medical transportation. PeaceHealth and Life Flight Network work collaboratively to move patients who require the highest level of care available during transport, or when a time sensitive emergency exists.

PeaceHealth is a not-for-profit health care system with medical centers, critical access hospitals, and medical clinics located in Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. Life Flight Network is an Oregon-based company and has served the area for nearly four decades. With the closest medical helicopters in Cottage Grove, Newport, and Aurora, Oregon, Life Flight Network strategically places resources to best serve the area. Each helicopter is staffed with a highly trained and experienced crew, consisting of an ICU trained flight nurse, flight paramedic, and pilot.

Life Flight Network, a not-for-profit air medical service, is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) and the National Accreditation Alliance of Medical Transport Applications (NAAMTA). Life Flight Network has administrative offices in Aurora, Oregon and is owned by a consortium of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Oregon Health & Science University, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, and Providence Health System.
