US-based medical transport provider Med-Trans Corporation has reported that 11 of its air medical bases have been reaccredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS).
The provider’s facilities were put through CAMTS' rigorous patient care and safety of transport standards before gaining reaccreditation. Those bases are: Air Reach, Mullins; C.A.R.E. Flight, Walterboro; GHS Med-Trans, Greenville; Life Air Rescue I, Shreveport; Life Air Rescue II, Winnfield; LifeFlight, Anderson; McAlester Regional AirCare, McAlester; Mercy Air Care, Sioux City; Novant Health Med Flight, Salisbury; Regional One, Spartanburg; and SC Air Care, Sumter.
“This recognition is a result of the hard work and professionalism of every employee to become the best at their positions of tremendous responsibility in transporting and caring for patients,” said Med-Trans Corporation President Rob Hamilton.
Med-Trans said it was able to gain reaccreditation due its adherence to CAMTS’ standards, which are above and beyond regulatory requirements. These are constantly improved upon by a board of highly skilled and experienced medical and medical transportation professionals.
