GMR completes GrandView purchase
The acquisition of Baltimore-based GrandView brings organ procurement expertise to the capabilities of Global Medical Response under its AirMed International arm.
Grandview Aviation will now be part of the GMR family within the AirMed division.

US-based emergency and patient relocation service Global Medical Response (GMR) has acquired the assets of GrandView Aviation. Baltimore, Maryland-based GrandView is a leading North American organ procurement transport aviation company with 130 employees and a fleet of Phenom 300 aircraft.

“We welcome GrandView and its employees to the GMR family,” says GMR CEO Randy Owen. “GrandView is a long-standing national, private aviation company with expertise in organ team transports and charter flights. It will bring a complementary layer of service as GMR continues to provide care to the world at a moment’s notice.”

“By joining forces with the existing organ transport operations at AirMed and GMR, we will accelerate the momentum of our mission of setting the new standard in private aviation,” adds newly named president of GrandView Jessie Naor. “We will continue to expand our organ transport operations throughout the United States in tandem with our VIP charter operations.”

GrandView has carried more than 2,220 teams since its inception, and offers private jet charters to leverage fleet availability. The company has grown dramatically over the past year, from 65 employees to 130 today, with plans to hire another 100 or more in 2022 including professional pilots, flight dispatchers and mechanics. The company has been a multi-year winner of the Inc 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America.

GrandView will operate under AirMed International, part of the GMR family.

“AirMed International and GMR are excited to welcome Jessie and her team and look forward to working with GrandView as we expand our capabilities of providing world-class aviation operations,” says president Denise Treadwell. She added that the business complements GMR’s existing organ transplant services that cover the western part of the United States.
