Air Ambulance Caribbean DBA AeroMD has acquired National Accreditation Alliance of Medical Transport Applications (NAAMTA) accreditation for its fixed-wing medical transport service.

AeroMD President and Chief Medical Officer Dr Brendan Anzalone said: “Since the founding of AeroMD, we have held ourselves to the highest standards for patient care. We are honoured to have earned NAAMTA accreditation, to reiterate for our team and patients, that our procedures meet or exceed the industry’s best practices.”

The company was evaluated through employee interviews, on-site evaluations and process reviews conducted within the ISO 9001:2015 auditing guidelines.

The accreditation confirms that AeroMD complies to NAANTA Standards, which encompass all aspects of medical transport, including business policies, licensure, education, skills maintenance, communication, and safety.

“It’s very satisfying when programmes like AeroMD take the NAAMTA Standards and apply them into their daily process and routines,” Roylen Griffin, NAAMTA’s Executive Director said. “It was equally satisfying that each person employed by AeroMD subscribes and takes personal responsibility for better patient outcome through professional care and safety. Thank you AeroMD for your commitment to compliance, a huge undertaking, and a privilege to welcome you to the NAAMTA alliance.”

“We enjoyed hosting the NAAMTA team of auditors at our Caribbean headquarters in the US Virgin Islands,” added Dr Anzalone. “We take pride in the fixed-wing, critical care operation we have established in this remote region, so we were pleased to showcase it and introduce our dedicated team.”
