CareFlite began with one Bell helicopter shared between Methodist Dallas Medical Center and Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital transporting about 20 patients each month. In 1980, CareFlite began operating a ground ambulance service in Dallas to support the helicopters and to provide non-emergency transportation to patients in area hospitals. Since being established in 1979, CareFlite has transported over 1,150,000 patients by air and ground.

CareFlite operates six helicopter bases in and around the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The fleet of aircraft can be used for emergent transports in Texas and Oklahoma, long haul patient transfers throughout the continental U.S., and is ideal for transplant programs needing to move patients, organs and/or transplant teams without delay.

“Congratulations to the CareFlite team celebrating 40 years of life-saving services to more than 1 million patients. We are proud to be part of your legacy of service, making lasting impacts on our fellow North Texans.” said Mitch Snyder, President and CEO, Bell
