MEDEVAC

Private and reliable international medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) services for patients hospitalized in a foreign country who cannot be transported by commercial airline or other means and need fixed-wing air ambulance services to the nearest appropriate medical facility back to their home country.

As our world expands and more people travel worldwide for studies, careers, visiting family, doing medical tourism, or traveling to further away destinations, the need for MEDEVAC or overseas medical evacuation services has become indispensable. MEDEVAC flights are generally used in critical cases when the patient is too critical to travel by other means or when other means of transport are not practical or safe.

Choosing a service with international experience and quality resources is essential to arrange the international medical evacuation.

Air Medical Transport provides global patient transportation services through strategic E.M.S. systems of F.A.A. Part 135 operators and partnerships with networks of credentialed carriers and healthcare providers worldwide. In addition to our US-based providers, our worldwide network of international transport partners covers (but is not limited to) North America, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

For international long-range missions outside North America coming to the U.S., we provide an advantage over services that are only based locally, which will have to dispatch, fly out and rest before positioning the aircraft to pick up and return with the patient. Based on the patient’s medical needs, requirements, and timing for each mission, we provide clients with all available options and utilize the best positioned, medically configured direct air carrier holding F.A.A. certificates issued under 14 C.F.R. Part 135.

MEDICAL REPATRIATION

Medical repatriation refers to a service for traveler patients that have been in a foreign healthcare system and can be transported to continue their care to their home country’s familiar healthcare system. Medical repatriation is directly linked to the healthcare system due to the costs associated with providing medical treatment to travelers in case of a medical emergency or returning the patient to their home country for medical treatment after evacuation.

We work with all medical facilities, hospitals, embassies, and consulates around the globe to assist their citizen patients that have become critically ill or injured while away from home. Our team collaborates to ensure a comprehensive placement and expedient return.

Before a patient can be repatriated, whether in North America or elsewhere, if a patient requires medical attention, therapy, or monitoring, a receiving bed and physician must be confirmed. To ensure the continuity of care and obtain a suitable type of bed at an appropriate facility, the patient’s current medical condition and requirements are assessed carefully by our repatriation specialists.

The service includes assessing all patient needs such as treatment planning, medical equipment, isolation precautions, and coordination of physician communications. Furthermore, it allows us to maximize the quality of patient care and enable savings for the sending facility.

Our experienced repatriation and transportation specialists are committed to advocating each patient’s needs to ensure the proper receiving facility, physician, and care requirements are obtained for every patient.

Our clients and family members are provided with ongoing status updates. We ensure that each case is handled with the highest level of professionalism.
