There’s a lot of talk lately about the government shutdown. Article upon article talks about what services will be affected after Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill failed to reach an agreement on a spending bill. With a government shutdown now in place, the leading air ambulance service wants to remind you that Angel MedFlight will continue to offer medical transportation to critically ill or injured patients from around the world.
Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance is open 24/7, 365 days a year. We are headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., but also have offices in Corvallis, Ore.; Fredericktown, Ohio; Honolulu, Hawaii; and now Tulsa, Okla.
We at Angel MedFlight are interested solely in providing the best patient care in the industry. Angel MedFlight has experts in medicine, aviation, insurance law and case management — all working under one roof to streamline the medical transportation process for you and case managers.
While the conversation goes back and forth inside the Beltway, here in Scottsdale we will continue to be the trusted voice on the other end of the phone when you or your loved one is in the midst of a medical crisis. Our flight coordinators will handle every detail of your air medical transport from start to finish. This is our One Touch Promise® to you.
Our fleet of air ambulance jets will be at the ready — with our base of operations being anywhere our aircraft land. When a patient needs a medical flight, our logistics team finds the closest airplane in our fleet to you and a medical flight crew is dispatched to the patient’s home or sending medical facility. The Critical Care Flight Nurse and flight paramedic remain with the patient Bedside-to- Bedside®, all the way to the receiving facility.
While our elected officials work to reach agreement on a spending bill, know that Angel MedFlight is dedicated to working hard on behalf of the patient. We are dedicated patient advocates at Angel MedFlight and have our own in-house legal team fighting to secure insurance benefits that are rightfully due the patient.
So as the federal government is shut down for the first time since 1995, rest assured that the leader in worldwide air ambulance service is fully operational and mission ready.
*Angel MedFlight currently utilizes the services of sole and exclusive FAA F.A.R. Part 135 vendors, such as AeroJet Services, LLC (License Number: J7EA116I).
