The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) and CAMTS European Union (EU) have announced new accredited services following its three-day board of directors meeting.
Taking place in Phoenix, Arizona, US, the directors awarded two dual accreditations – to BDMS Emergency Services of Bangkok Hospital, Thailand, and On Call International, Rescue Nurse in Salem, New Hampshire, US – and a total of 13 reaccreditations. The organisations reaccredited were: Air Methods Midwest Region from Missouri, US; Air Methods South Central Region from Arizona; AMR Air Ambulance from Colorado; Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport from Wisconsin; FlightCare from Michigan; HealthNet Aeromedical Services, Inc from West Virginia; Life Guard International, Inc. from Nevada; Mayo Clinic Medical Transport from Minnesota; MedFlight from Ohio; Pediatric and Neonatal Doernbecher Transport Team from Oregon; Premier Jets/Lifeguard Air Ambulance from Oregon; St Vincent StatFlight from Indiana; and STAT MedEvac from Pennsylvania.
Two services receiving dual accreditations means that the total number of companies dual accredited is now four. CAMTS and CAMTS EU began giving dual accreditations last year.
During the meeting, CAMTS EU announced plans to rebrand in the future in order to incorporate growing CAMTS accreditation interest in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. By the end of 2018, the board aims to have a new name and website.
