CareFlite – Why Work For Us?


Established in 1979, CareFlite is the oldest joint use air medical transportation service in the United States. CareFlite began with one helicopter shared between Methodist Dallas Medical Center and Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital transporting about 20 patients each month. CareFlite recently replaced its entire helicopter fleet with new Bell 429’s and Bell 407GX aircraft at a cost of $35 million. It is believed to be the youngest helicopter fleet in the United States. 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. CareFlite’s Ground Ambulance Division has bases in the following counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Erath, Hill, Johnson, Kaufman, Palo Pinto and Parker. CareFlite operates 911/EMS services in Balch Springs, SE Dallas County, Ellis County ESD #5, Hill County, and Kaufman County.
