Carilion Clinic Life-Guard
When seconds count, Carilion Clinic Life-Guard, Virginia’s first air ambulance service, can be a life saver. Carilion’s emergency transport helicopter speeds response times in critical situations because it doesn’t have to follow roadways. That speed is especially critical when injuries occur in many rural areas throughout western Virginia.
Carilion Clinic Life-Guard can be valuable when:
- Time is critical and the patient derives significant medical benefits from the speed of air transportation.
- Advanced life support skills are necessary en route and are not readily available by ground transportation.
- Patients are located in remote areas that are difficult to access with ground transportation.
