Non-Emergency Medical Transport Services
Non-emergency medical transport allows patients who may be unable to travel conventionally due to medical conditions to travel safely from one location to another.
Sometimes, patients who are stable, but are otherwise unable to travel by conventional means are required to use non-emergency medical transportation due to oxygen requirements, mobility issues or for ease and comfort.
For instance, a patient may live in Tampa, Florida, but need to see a specialist in Jacksonville, Florida. The drive may be too long for the patient and a commercial flight may be too stressful, so we offer an alternative means of transportation – non-emergency medical transport services.
Another example is an elderly mother living in a nursing home in New York may decide she wants to visit her family in North Carolina, but driving or flying commercially are not an option for her, so we offer this type of transportation for elderly people.
Our non-emergency medical transportation services are the solution in similar cases. In order to serve as many patients as possible, we have a transportation assistance program with various options for this type of transfer:
- Fixed-wing air ambulance service
- Commercial medical escort service
- International commercial medical stretcher
Our fixed-wing air ambulance service offers twin engines, turbo props and Lear jets, depending on the flight time. We determine which aircraft will work for the patient and their budget. All of our aircrafts are equipped to handle any type of medical condition or emergency with our highly-qualified medical team. We provide a full medical bed to bed service.
Our Commercial Medical Escort service is the best service for patients who cannot travel alone and maneuver through a busy airport on their own. A qualified Flight Nurse or Flight Paramedic, will travel with the patient and take care of all the stress associated with traveling in today’s hectic airports.
Our International Commercial Medical Stretcher service is available for patients who cannot sit for more than one to two hours without being completely exhausted or who need to be laying flat throughout the transfer. This service is only available when the departure or arrival destination is international and it is limited to major cities.
