Ground Ambulance

A ground ambulance is the most cost-effective way of getting patients home. It also bears the lowest risk for patients: we have helped patients who cannot safely fly or do not want to. Our ground ambulances can be used for entire journeys in North America. We also use them world-wide to bring patients to airports.

Air Ambulance

An air ambulance is an ICU in the sky. It is a dedicated private jet that has been fitted to have ICU-level equipment such as oxygen, cardiac monitoring, and ventilator support. We use the newest, top-of-the-line equipment to ensure your safe and quick repatriation.

Stretcher on a Commercial Flight

A stretcher on a commercial flight is set up across 6-8 seats in the back of the plane. We can bring in our air ambulance equipment, including oxygen, cardiac monitoring, and ventilator support. Our top-of-the-line equipment ensures your safe, quick, and comfortable journey.

Escort on a Commercial Flight

Air medical escorts provide medical assistance through the airport and during the flight. They make sure individuals get home comfortably and safely. They help with everything from lifting luggage to changing dressings to monitoring for signs of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Air medical escorts could be doctors, registered nurses, or paramedics–depending on patients’ needs.

Our bases across North America give our team and fleet quick access to all corners of the globe. We have brought patients home from every continent through all modes of transportation. We get creative when we need to: we have safely transported patients on trains, boats, and RVs. No destination is too far. No situation is too difficult.
