In acute emergencies when it is necessary to transfer a patient to a specialized medical facility, LifeFlight services are available and ready to respond to our call. Our medical team is trained to coordinate with other medical experts to organize acute specialized treatment. St. Andrews emergency staff will treat and stabilize the patient and arrange for a LifeFlight transfer from our helipad to the nearest appropriately equipped hospital, often Central Maine Medical Center or Maine Medical Center, both less than 15 minutes away by air. LincolnHealth - St. Andrews Campus is the only Emergency Department in the Midcoast Region with a dedicated helipad for this type of emergency service.
