Valley Med Flight began providing air medical services in 2010 from its headquarters in Grand Forks, North Dakota. From there, the organization expanded its program to serve the bustling emergency medical needs of the oil boom in Williston, North Dakota in 2011.

Iron Mountain, Michigan was next in 2012 followed by another base expansion to Sidney, Montana in 2013.
