The LifeFlight Capital Campaign
In an emergency, time is of the essence. And that's where LifeFlight Eagle comes in.
The helicopter emergency service provides speedy care for highway accident victims, rural residents experiencing heart attacks or strokes, and hospital patients who need transport to a specialty care center.
The Golden Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation is pleased to have conducted a capital campaign to establish a LifeFlight Eagle base right here in Clinton—on the hospital campus!
The emergency helicopter program includes high-tech equipment for giving in-flight care to stroke, cardiac, obstetric and other critically ill or injured patients. The use of air ambulances can mean the difference between life and death.
For more information about investing in this campaign, please call 660.890.7108.
