MINNEAPOLIS — Life Link III has been awarded reaccreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems for both its rotor wing and fixed wing services.
To earn accreditation, providers must meet strict guidelines and safety standards that address medical direction, crew education, communications, safety, documentation and quality improvement.
Life Link III last went through the accreditation process in 2013. As one of the largest hospital-based nonprofit consortium programs in the United States, Life Link III has a 31-year history of patient care and transport.
The service consists of nine hospital systems working cooperatively to provide helicopter and airplane services for rapid on-scene emergency response and interfacility transport for patients requiring critical care.
Life Link III operates one fixed-wing base and six helicopter bases that include Alexandria, Blaine, Cloquet, Hibbing, and Willmar and Rice Lake, Wisconsin.
