Medical Air Escort


Medical Air Escort is a great alternative if the patient is in stable enough condition to sit during take-off and landing and has a limited need for oxygen.  The patient flies comfortably in First Class or Business Class on a major commercial airline and is under constant care of at least one member of the EMED Jamaica medical team.  If the departure and arrival cities are major hubs for the airlines, direct flights of relatively short duration are often available.

As an additional benefit, the cost of this medical transport service is significantly less than air ambulance service via private aircraft.

Contact EMED Jamaica and discuss your patient's condition with our Patient Transport Specialists to determine if your patient is a good candidate for Medical Air Escort. Call us at 876-275-1119 or 561-627-9455.

Once the trip is complete, we "close the loop" by handling post trip details.  We'll conduct a post-trip medical assessment and provide a verbal report on the patient's current condition once we arrive at the receiving facility.  Our medical team will stay with the patient until he/she is in the capable hands of the medical staff at the receiving facility.  We follow up by completing and submitting all required paperwork.
