AirMed International's critical care operations have been re-accredited up to July 2022 by The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). AirMed is a Global Medical Response (GMR) company.
“Accreditation by CAMTS is the ultimate seal of approval in our industry for the safety and quality of medical transport services," says AirMed president Denise Treadwell. "This public recognition is testament to the expertise that we demonstrate daily, the hard work of every employee to become the very best at performing their awesome responsibility to transport and care for our patients around the world.”
CAMTS accreditation covers AirMed's fleet of dedicated medical transports, paediatric intensive care, intra-aortic balloon pump for cardiac care, perinatal, neonatal and adult patients. The organisation's standards ensure AirMed's ability to address issues of patient medical care, aircraft safety and programme quality.
