Medical Transport Options
Which Service Is Right for Me?
Air ambulance service is the fastest method of transporting critically ill patients from one facility to another. All planes are equipped with life support equipment to meet the critical care needs of the patient.
Medical escort via commercial flights is a cost-effective alternative when a patient is capable of sitting up during take-off and landing. The patient is accompanied throughout the trip by at least one member of our medical team. This includes care during the medical flight and any necessary transport by ground ambulance.
This can be a money-saving option when time is not a critical issue, but the patient's condition requires him/her to be lying down. Patients are accompanied by members of our medical team and travel in a sleeper car of an Amtrak train.
This method is a less expensive option for patients in need of international medical transportation to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. U.S. Air Ambulance
works with the selected commercial airline to remove several rows of seats to accommodate the patient's stretcher and medical equipment. Our medical team accompanies the patient for the duration of the flight, as well as during ground transfers via ground ambulance.
This is a logical choice for non-critical patients whose medical transport requires less than 24 hours of driving time and/or a distance of 1500 miles or under.
Because of our commitment to exceptional customer service, U.S. Air Ambulance has received hundreds of letters of thanks and recommendation from patients and their families. Here are just a few testimonials
