OSF Relocates a Life-Flight Helicopter to Galesburg

The move provides area with faster access to emergency care

OSF is relocating one of its Life Flight helicopters to Galesburg.

The Peoria-based helicopter will move to OSF Saint Mary Medical Center each day, weather permitting. The move will only happen during the day. 

The helicopter is expected to provide Galesburg and surrounding communities with faster access to emergency case.

The helicopter can carry up to two patients and four crew members.

Officials at OSF say it's nice to know that they can just pick up the phone and Life Flight will be ready to go in minutes.
