AirLife Denver HealthOne ambulance and helicopter added to the North


A new ambulance and helicopter will join North Suburban Medical Center fleet, responding to medical emergencies in the northern metro communities out of its 9191 Grant St., Thornton, address.

"Providing good quality care to our community is essential, so time matters when you have a heart attack or stroke," said RN Hollie Seeley, President, and CEO of North Suburban Medical Center. Seeley is a former flight nurse herself and said she's glad to see her hospital get a helicopter.

"This allows us to bring up our level of care at North Suburban," Seeley said. "It provides for all of the tertiary care in Denver for our community and the service. So we are thrilled."

The hospital celebrated a ribbon-cutting ceremony with AirLife Denver HealthOne medical transport service's new base on May 3.  According to hospital officials, the ongoing growth along the Northern 1-25 corridor will require quality emergency and critical care service for the North Metro Communities.

Brian Leonard, the Director of Business Operations for Airlife Denver, said his company is now Health One's critical care transport team and is part of the North Suburban Health One system. It's a more significant partnership between the hospital AirLife service critical care transport facility in Thornton.

"Ideally, what this does bring access for rapid transport in this community, but also the surrounding communities. The patients can come to North Suburban and know that they have an immediate access point to get to maybe a level one trauma center or a comprehensive stroke center, like Swedish Medical Center, Health, One's level one trauma center,"  Leonard said.

"It's wonderful care here at Northside and then extending us into that northern presence to serve the communities around Thornton and beyond," he added.

Chad Christianson, CEO HealthOne also excited to have a helicopter at the new base.

"HealthOne has always been a part of North Suburban. We are incredibly excited about the Airlife base here at North Suburban with trauma access to this level of care in this community," Christianson said. "I think it's needed and this helicopter service will be a great addition to the Northern Denver Metro area community."
