Who We Are

Long-distance ground transportation is available if the patient is not in critical condition and cannot or will not fly.  Long Distance Ground is a cost-saving alternative to air ambulance travel. The long-distance ground is a great choice when the patient medical transport requires less than 24 hours of driving time and/or the trip is 1500 miles or under.

Depending on the length of the trip and the total distance to be traveled, each patient will be administered to by one or two trained Registered Nurses or Critical Care Paramedics.

Note: Only patients who are in need of Basic Life Support qualify for Long Distance Ground.  A patient who requires a ventilator or has a tracheostomy is not eligible. 

Patients with chronic illness, cancer, stroke, chronic lung and heart conditions, Alzheimer's Disease, dementia, and mobility issues are ideal candidates for Long Distance Ground medical transport.
