Thirty years ago, on June 1, 1987, Flight For Life-McHenry transported its first patient from Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Ill. to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee. That was the beginning of a close partnership in trauma care and paramedic education that continues today. Since its inception in 1984, Flight for Life has transported over 36,000 patients to hospitals all over Wisconsin and Illinois, including many of the Advocate hospitals.
