Geisinger's Life Flight Moving Danville Base To Selinsgrove

After 38 years in Danville, Geisinger is moving its Life Flight 1 base to Snyder County this summer. The move will allow for expansion, giving more space in Danville to the program's maintenance team. Geisinger says the program’s base in Danville, which has been on the GMC campus since 1981, will be relocated to the Penn Valley Airport near Selinsgrove. The Danville location will continue as the helicopter maintenance facility. Geisinger says the move will decrease response times in Juniata, Mifflin, lower Northumberland, Perry, Snyder and Union counties, which are furthest away from specialized treatment. Life Flight averages 2,800 transports per year with nine helicopters spread over a half dozen bases in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania. Life Flight recently transported its 66,000th patient in its history.
