AirMed International has announced that it has acquired San Antonio, US-based fixed-wing air ambulance firm Air Medical.
Air Medical, which AirMed described as the largest fixed-wing company in Texas, has a fleet of three jets and two King Air turboprops. It is based out of San Antonio International Airport. AirMed said it already operates out of nearly 30 bases.
“Strategically, this acquisition will allow AirMed International to serve growing requirements for critical care transport as we meet the needs of healthcare in the Texas region and enhance support for area military medical transports,” said AirMed president Denise Treadwell. “The compassionate, dedicated and experienced Air Medical team that chairman Joe McCart has built is quite compatible with our professional medical and flight teams.”
McCart said that the acquisition will benefit his company due to AirMed’s ‘integrity, financial strength and commitment to patient care’.
Air Medical has operated for 15 years, and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS).
