Med-Trans Corp. has announced the transition of their two Carestar air medical programs to their well-known AeroCare brand. The life saving programs will collectively serve West Texas and New Mexico 24 hours a day, seven days a week beginning June 1st.
The region will benefit from the superior clinical care and exceptional reputation established by AeroCare over the last 20+ years as well as the aviation expertise of Med-Trans, recognized as an industry leader in developing successful air medical programs throughout the United States.
The AeroCare program currently has four base locations: Fixed and Rotor wing in Lubbock and Seminole, Texas as well as Clovis, New Mexico. The newest locations for the AeroCare family are located in Odessa and Fort Stockton, Texas. These air medical programs will transport patients utilizing Bell 407 helicopters that are designed to facilitate optimal patient care. The aircraft are equipped with state-of-the-art safety equipment and features, such as night vision goggles, radar altimeters, GPS navigation, satellite tracking and communications and helicopter terrain alert warning systems (HTAWS).
Rob Hamilton, Sr. Vice President of Business Development for Med-Trans Corporation stated, “AeroCare has done an incredible job serving the region and providing critical care to patients throughout West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. The additional locations allow AeroCare to expand, providing an indispensable service to counties that will greatly benefit when time is of the essence.”
“AeroCare is recognized as an industry leader in safety and clinical care. The AeroCare staff and crew will work closely with hospitals and first- responder services throughout West Texas and New Mexico. This is really a win-win opportunity for all involved,” said Bobby Sanchez, AeroCare’s marketing manager.
With aircraft based in Lubbock, Clovis and Seminole, AeroCare provides 24-hour emergency care for area hospitals in more than 62 counties covering more than 250,000 square miles, across West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. CAMTS accredited since 1994, AeroCare offers fixed-wing and helicopter air ambulance service to Covenant Health System, University Medical Center and Lubbock Heart Hospital as well as other regional hospitals. AeroCare's three helicopters and one airplane are certified as mobile intensive care units and are equipped with extensive life support equipment essential to providing care to patients in life-threatening and emergency conditions. AeroCare’s dedicated team of highly specialized flight nurses, paramedics and pilots are prepared to meet needs of the most critically ill patient. AeroCare received the 1999 Texas EMS Air Medical Service Award from the Texas Department of Health, and, in 2000, became the first program in the United States to be recognized for 20,000 consecutive hours of incident-free operation.
