Transport Medicine

We are accredited world leaders in international transport medicine. Independent of any one single mode of transportation, we link patients around the world using ground ambulances, fixed wing air ambulances, helicopters and scheduled commercial airlines. Our highly skilled Transport Teams are fully cross trained and certified to travel anywhere in the world – by any means of transport. We coordinate and dispatch hundreds of air medical responses per year with a trusted, accredited team of professionals.

Transport medicine is the vital link connecting patients with the care they need – anywhere in the world. Being independent of any one single mode of transport means we do not have a strategic interest in selling unnecessary or costly services to our clients. We choose the right mode of transport for the right patient – with the ability to provide strategic, cost effective and innovative solutions for our clients and to our patients.

Transport medicine brings the acute care environment to the highways, airports and skies of the world, linking critically ill patients with centres of excellence, connecting patients with specialized medical care and reuniting patients with their homes, communities and families. Whether travelling over five miles or five thousand miles, our Air Medical Transport Teams circle the globe, weaving our patients into the fabric of the world’s healthcare systems.
