Global air ambulance endeavor takes off in Florida

Two aerial ambulance pros have succeeded in linking first response teams spanning the entire Western Hemisphere with their new Florida-based joint venture, American Jet Rescue Worldwide Air Ambulance, the duo announced in Fort Pierce recently.

Mexico-based Jet Rescue Air Ambulance's CEO Carlos Salinas and U.S. air ambulance innovator James Hoehn created a partnership to ingeniously connect aerial response options serving two continents — from the southernmost tip of South America to all of North America including the U.S., Canada and Cuba — with expansion foreseen in the future.

The pair envisioned a way of updating the medical transport sector with plenty of planning, research and development. Salinas noted that by studying their capabilities, the partners were able to integrate transport model upgrades to improve clinical care that their competitors may have overlooked.

"Technology and cutting edge clinical techniques … are readily available in lighter, more portable packages than imagined even just a few years ago,” Salinas said. “And, incorporating them into our program moves us into a pro-active treatment and preventive care mode, as opposed to the old school damage control and reactive mindset of air medical providers not yet embracing the full scope of advanced research and technology."

Having gathered medical and aviation experts charged with safe patient care at the company’s Fort Pierce hub, with a fleet of eight jets standing by at several bases, the enterprise offers immediate air ambulance service from its strategic Southeastern U.S. location.

"Superior client services spur customer satisfaction and return growth from a business perspective," Hoehn said. "However, patient care and outcome, along with safety for clients, crew and ground support are always the number one priority, ahead of business ambitions."

Mexico’s Jet Rescue firm is Latin America’s largest fixed-wing medical transport company, having flown thousands of missions. The new company holds accreditation from the European Aeromedical Institute (EURAMI) and licensing in Mexico and internationally.

“With the alliance of the two organizations, we are finding many ways to bring the goals of enhanced patient care, safety and client convenience into one innovative program without losing sight of keeping costs at a thoughtful level," Hoehn said.
