“What we do is all about whom we do it for.”
Air Methods is a team of caring, innovative, and collaborative individuals with one purpose - to save lives every day. There’s a dedication to our mission that is palpable. We value the diversity of backgrounds, ideas, opinions, and life experiences that our team members bring. We selectively hire people who consider themselves high-achievers and those that have empathy. We all share the intrinsic motivation to be of service to others; patient advocacy is in our DNA. Our values create an open and transparent culture where we instill mutual trust, autonomy, and outside-the-box thinking.
1980, Roy Morgan founded Air Methods after a personal experience convinced him that properly equipped and staffed air medical service helicopters were a must. With one helicopter and a single hospital contract in Colorado, he pledged his commitment to safety and outstanding patient care. Today, we hold those same values and are always ready to respond when it matters most. Annually, we conduct around 100,000 transports amassing over 150,00 flight hours.
