Long Distance Ground is an alternative for non-critical patients who do not want to fly, or need to be relocated from one facility to another, within a distance that would not be practical for air or rail transport. U.S. Air Ambulance can provide non-emergency medical transport services for non-critical patient transport and is a logical choice for transports that require less than 24 hours of driving time and/or are 1500 miles or under.
