Ground and Air Emergency Transport Services

LifeLink is our emergency ground transport service. Our transport team is dedicated to providing specialized intensive care, advanced and basic life support, and is focused on patient care and community health. Our team provides support, instruction, care and treatment from the moment a request for transport is initiated until the patient’s care is transferred to the receiving healthcare facility.

The helicopter is our critical care air transport. The helicopter allows us to decrease patient load and unload time by 15 minutes - the difference between life and/or quality of life and to bring access to rural areas. The Roper Hospital Rooftop Helipad is the first of its kind on the Charleston peninsula.
