Altru Care Flight

Altru Care Flight can transport patients at a greater rate of speed, through challenging weather conditions, has space for additional passengers, and provides the industry-leading healthcare that Altru Health System is known for at a more reasonable cost than helicopter medical transports.

Critical Care Transport

A Pilatus PC 12 fixed-wing aircraft anchors the service and is located at the Grand Forks Regional Airport. The air ambulance is equipped with the latest and most advanced lifesaving equipment and a critical care trained medical staff, composed of paramedics and registered nurses, to safely transport patients to their next medical destination.

NICU Team

In August of 2019, Altru Care Flight began offering neonatal patient transportation services.

The air ambulance is equipped with the latest and most advanced lifesaving equipment and can now provide the region with rapid access to Altru’s specialized neonatal medical care. The Altru Care Flight neonatal transportation team consists of registered nurses and respiratory therapists that are overseen and specifically trained to care for premature neonates by Altru’s neonatology physician staff.
