Emergency Transport Request by Helicopter or Airplane

Critical Care Ground Transport
Non-emergency Ground Transport


Vanderbilt LifeFlight provides solutions for all emergency medical transport needs. LifeFlight will transport a patient to any medically appropriate hospital, and our crews have access to the region's only Level I Trauma Center, Burn Center and Children's Hospital, all at Vanderbilt. LifeFlight is a key part of a trauma system that includes pre-hospital care, definitive care, rehabilitation and injury prevention. We are nationally recognized for quality and safety.



The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems will conduct an accreditation site visit of Vanderbilt LifeFlight on October 14 to 16, 2020. This replaces the previous public notice visits, which have been postponed due to COVID-19.

The purpose of the site visit will be to evaluate the program’s compliance with nationally established medical transport standards. The site visit results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which accreditation should be awarded to the program.             

CAMTS accreditation standards deal with issues of patient care and safety of the transport environment. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent or valid information about such matters may request a public information interview with the CAMTS site surveyors at the time of the site visit. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests for public information interviews must be made in writing and sent to CAMTS no later than 10 business days before the site survey begins. The request should also indicate the nature of the information to be provided during the interview. Such request should be addressed to:

                                Office of the Executive Director
                                Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems
                                PO Box 130
                                Sandy Springs, SC 29677

The Commission will acknowledge such written requests in writing or by telephone and will inform the program of the request for an interview. The Commission will, in turn, notify the interviewee of the date, time and place of the meeting. 

This notice is posted in accordance with CAMTS requirements and shall not be removed until the site visit is completed.
