As healthcare systems organize around specialization of care at specific facilities, interfacility transport becomes a key component to the effectiveness of care plans.
The Medstar LifeFlight program provides rapid transport for long distance critical care patients.
Medstar’s ground critical care transport units are equipped to handle CCU and ICU patient moves between healthcare facilities. These services are provided by Medstar personnel who have advanced training in managing critically ill patients and using IV pumps, advanced airway control devices such as ventilators, as well as CPAP and BiPAP, and significant knowledge and experience with a wide range of medications.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of community leaders as well as healthcare leaders from each of our stakeholder health systems.
