VCU Health LifeEvac aircraft

Not just transport. Treatment.

VCU Health’s LifeEvac is an extension and representation of our academic medical center, which provides the highest standard of care in the region across all medical specialties. Through air and ground support, we transfer patients from the scene of accidents and other medical facilities to VCU Medical Center, with paramedics and nurses who begin advanced, specialized treatment while en route.

Ground or air, the same level of care.

We continue the excellent care our partners started. Whether on board our helicopters or in the ground ambulance, our close-knit team includes highly skilled pilots, drivers, paramedics, and critical care nurses and specialists.

All specialties. Every day.
