San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Aeromedevac, one of the nation’s leading air ambulance services for more than 20 years, has expanded its medical transportation services to Mexico, providing assurance for Americans with medical concerns south of the border that they can quickly be airlifted to U.S. facilities in emergency situations. Aeromedevac now provides its complete air ambulance and medical transportation services throughout Mexico in addition to the entire United States and international locations.
Aeromedevac’s state of the art fleet of fixed wing aircraft is fully equipped to meet all emergency medical flight transportation needs, including bed-to-bed pick-up and delivery of patients to move them from Mexico medical facilities to American hospitals or care units. The air ambulance service provides peace of mind and speedy, professional transportation back to the United States for patients in need of critical care, including transplant candidates who must be moved expediently to U.S. hospitals.
Aeromedevac’s more than two decades of providing medical flights throughout the U.S. and internationally has established a stellar reputation as one of the leading evacuation services in the world. The service provides medical transportation for ill or injured individuals, family members, managed care companies, hospitals, military, and governmental embassies and agencies with its fleet of fixed wing flying ambulances. The San Diego-based operation arranges ground transportation and delivers highly specialized care and necessary incidentals for successful transportation. Each plane is equipped similarly to an intensive care unit/emergency room, allowing specialized crews of registered nurses and critical care paramedics or other medical personnel to facilitate care for patients in need of urgent treatment, including organ transplants, cancer treatments, specialized surgery, burn care, advanced head trauma and spinal injuries, and other serious conditions that require expedited medial air ambulance transportation.
Aeromedevac also actively works will many U.S. consulates and hospitals to provide medical air ambulance support when needed in the repatriation of foreign nationals to their homelands in cases where patients who are not U.S. citizens are injured or ill but do not have the proper paperwork to stay in the U.S. Aeromedevac works as a liaison between medical facilities and consulates to arrange for the international transportation of these foreign national patients to facilities in their home countries. “We assist in this process by helping the hospital in filing the proper paperwork with the Consulate by contacting the receiving facility and negotiating for the receiving of the patient,” Dain Pulis, Aeromedevac’s director of patient benefits, explained.
Aeromedevac is a founding member of the International Air Ambulance Alliance-Fixed Wing (IAAA), recognized for raising international professional standards of air ambulance providers while creating transparency for insurers, medical assistance companies and individual clients of air ambulance services. It is also accredited by the European Aero-Medical Institute, the top accreditation body for U.S. and European air medical evacuation providers.
