We Are Proud of Our 100% Safety Record
U.S. Air Ambulance is a leading international medical transport company with a central command post is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and every phone call and email inquiry is answered personally. We fly both domestically and internationally and have extensive experience with both ground and air medical transport moving 97,000 patients with a 100% safety record.
Partnering with the U.S. Government
We have been named a preferred provider to the U.S. Department of State and its 278 posts around the world. We are often called upon to provide International Medical Flights for State Department employees and their family members; transporting them from outlying posts back to the United States or to other countries where appropriate medical care is awaiting them.
We participate in a program for the Department of Homeland Security to move up to 800 foreign national patients each and every day from the U.S. back to their home countries in places like Guatemala and El Salvador. We have provided International ambulance service to over 150,000 patients in this program thus far.
U.S. Air Ambulance is also a preferred provider to Medicare and Medicaid.
These experiences and others gave us the core skills needed to create our Hospital Evacuation Liaison Program (HELP):
- During Hurricane Katrina we worked under the direction of FEMA and were responsible for air medical evacuation of over 250 patients out of New Orleans.
- Prior to Hurricane Wilma, we moved 1,500 prisoners in two days to another facility out of the hurricane's path.
- During Hurricanes Gustav and Ike, we worked with two major hospital groups to transport critical patients ahead of the storms.
Through our HELP program, we have contracted with over 500 hospitals from around the country to partially or fully evacuate their patients and staff during a large scale emergency. We have a network of over 600 transport companies coming from outside the impacted region to provide the contracted hospital with fixed-wing and rotor-wing air ambulances and critical care, ALS, and BLS ground ambulances, wheelchair vans, and buses. HELP includes a network of receiving facilities that have agreed to accept patients from the evacuated areas.
