An air ambulance or medevac can typically be arranged in under an hour. During this hour all the necessary paperwork is obtained, including:
- A full medical report
- Confirmation with the receiving facility
- Arranging ground transportation.
The pick-up of a patient can occur within a window of 2–3 hours. This allows for the air ambulance to be configured for patient needs, flight planning, travel to the nearest executive style airport, and allow for the discharging hospital to complete their required paperwork.
After the air ambulance has been arranged, patient pickup is based on the availability of a receiving bed and family wishes. Often the air ambulance is arranged 24 hours in advance. However, same day service is available depending on crew rest and air ambulance availability.
We take the burden of planning off your shoulders
Neither the facility nor the patient’s family has to worry about any of the logistics. Everything is taken care of. We work with your family, case managers and social workers, discharging and receiving facilities, and our staff to ensure that all details are confirmed. A family’s focus during this time should not be on the nuts and bolts of the transfer, but on the care of their loved one.
We have been providing caring, compassionate, and reliable medical transfers for over 40 years!
All the Best!
