Why the name change?
Having experienced a period of rapid growth and renewal, LifeFlight (formerly CareFlight Group) decided, after much deliberation, that a change of name was needed to better suit our growing organisation.
Above all, saving lives is at the core of what we do every day across all elements of our organisation and hence LifeFlight was chosen because saving lives is what we are all about.
The change is in name only, our organisation remains a not-for-profit service and retains the same strong community and industry focus and connection.
The change was also necessary to reduce confusion in the community with CareFlight New South Wales, which started around the same time as us, but which is a totally separate organisation and business with no association with CareFlight Group Queensland.
