Care Flight

NATIONALLY-RECOGNIZED CARE, NOW AT THE SPEED OF FLIGHT
Our new helipad lets you airlift emergent cardiac and stroke patients straight to St. Joseph’s Health Hospital — significantly reducing transit time, not only giving them the world-class care they need as early as possible, but also exponentially boosting their chances of favorable outcomes.


“St. Joseph’s new helipad will allow patients from surrounding counties who are facing life-threatening cardiac and stroke emergencies to be treated by our expert team much faster than if they were transported by ambulance,” says Leslie Paul Luke, President and CEO, St. Joseph’s Health. “The longer a cardiac patient has to wait for care, the more heart muscle they lose. And every minute a stroke is left untreated, millions of brain cells die. Reducing transit time will not only provide patients the world-class care they need as early as possible, but also exponentially boost their chances of favorable outcomes.”

Time is Muscle. Time is Tissue.
The longer your cardiac or stroke patient has to wait for care, the more heart muscle and brain tissue they lose. So, it is vital that patients receive treatment as soon as possible.
