Hospital Heliport Directory

The Illinois Department of Transportation – Division of Aeronautics has created a new Hospital Heliport Directory to assist in planning EMS flight operations throughout the state. This supersedes the previous version of the directory (2002-2003). In order to provide the most current and accurate information, the directory will now be offered as an electronic document available for download/print. Changes to this directory will be made as information is verified. All amendments will be noted by date and posted on this website as they occur. Please visit this site often and refresh your browser to check for updates.

This document is published and maintained by the Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Aeronautics. Should you have any corrections, comments, or suggestions, please contact:

To the users of this directory:

The purpose of this directory is to provide information to the aeronautical community for planning purposes when operating to and from hospital heliports in the state of Illinois. This directory is not intended to be relied upon as a completely accurate depiction of existing heliport conditions.

All hospital heliports in Illinois are classified as Restricted Landing Areas and are for private use only. Prior permission to operate from the heliport should be obtained from the hospital administration.

Everyone involved in the production of this document has strived to ensure that the information contained within is accurate. However, it is always possible that errors have been made. Also, conditions at a heliport can change at any time. Users should obtain the latest information from all available sources prior to flight.

Remember, the pilot in command is ultimately responsible for the safety of the flight. That includes obtaining the most accurate information possible. This directory alone will not fulfill that obligation.
