REACH Air Medical Services operates Methodist AirCare in partnership with the Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio, the largest provider of health care services in the region.  Current bases exist in San Antonio and Pearsall serving the South Texas region.

This new partnership is in response to the continuing growth of transports by Methodist AirCare throughout South Texas.  In this new integrated model, clinical and customer services, as well as business relations activities will be integrated and managed by both Methodist AirCare and Air Evac Lifeteam.  All typical transport activities will be monitored, addressed and managed by both companies, ensuring an enhanced continuum of care for patients in the region.

“We’re looking forward to this partnership with REACH,” said Air Evac Lifeteam President Seth Myers. “By sharing best practices and combining resources, we’ll be able to provide a more efficient health delivery system for our customers. Most importantly, we’ll ensure more access to health care resources for the patients we serve.”

Operations management, including aviation, on board clinical activities and maintenance, will be fulfilled by Air Evac Lifeteam.  Methodist AirCare will manage customer relationships and monitoring of clinical care key performance indicators.  As an added benefit to this initiative, the membership program and benefits administered by the AirMedCare Network will be reciprocal between both REACH Air Medical and Air Evac Lifeteam.   A new Bell 206 LR aircraft will he brought to the Seguin base, the first rotor wing service to be introduced to the markets east of San Antonio.

“We are excited to continue to grow the Methodist AirCare program in this innovative way,” says Sean Russell, President of REACH Air Medical Services.  “Serving the patients in the region by partnering with Air Evac Lifeteam, the Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio, and Guadalupe Regional Medical Center in Seguin is a great opportunity for us and the region.”
