Willapa Harbor Hospital has an onsite helipad that is available 24 hours a day. We have three business partnerships for helicopter service. Our primary service is Airlift Northwest, but if needed we can also use Life Flight, or in certain circumstances the US Coast Guard. Occasionally, the weather is not conducive to flying, and the helicopters cannot make it in. In that case, ground transportation must be used.
Although air transportation is expensive, it is a vital and necessary service for rural areas like Pacific County. Both Airlift Northwest and Life Flight offer a service/insurance package to consumers that at last update, costs approximately $80 a month and covers air transportation for all members of your household.
