Boston MedFlight celebrates 35-year anniversary


Boston MedFlight, a nonprofit that provides air and ground medical transport to severely ill or injured patients, is celebrating its 35th year of service, according to a press release.

Boston MedFlight transports 200 to 300 patients from Martha’s Vineyard annually, including more than one per day during the summer months. The organization has provided care for thousands of patients in need on the Island since its inception in 1985, without regard to insurance status or ability to pay, the release states.

“Patients encounter our Boston MedFlight staff on what is often the worst day of their lives,” said Maura Hughes, CEO of Boston MedFlight, in the release. “I want to acknowledge our team, past and present, who have contributed to this significant milestone. We look forward to continuing our nonprofit mission of providing the highest-quality critical care transport system in this region for years to come.”
