My Real Life Moment Featured Story

Six-time Olympic medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen was involved in a severe ATV accident in Arizona and was paralyzed by a spinal cord injury.

They contacted Angel MedFlight for a medical flight to the hospital, which is a Center of Excellence for rehabilitation. Angel MedFlight documented Amy's transport and followed up on her recovery two months later. See Amy’s champion spirit and determination to move forward. This is an inspiring rehabilitation journey.

"Professional from the first phone call when we were making arrangements to get our dad out of Cancun in June, to the most recent phone calls to my parents this week as their case file is closed. They put my mom, sister and I at ease, and were in control of the situation, letting us know that our dad was in good hands and everything would be alright"   - Julie (Facebook Review)

Featured Testimonial: Lindsay's Story

There I was: lying in a hospital bed, barely coherent, trying to maintain consciousness in between seizures long enough to understand what my doctor was saying.

"It's time for hospice."

Even in my barely conscious state, I was shocked to my core. I knew things were bad. My weight was down to an unimaginably low number and my blood pressure and heart rate were barely discernible.

As a case manager at a hospital I have the privilege of working with many flight companies for transports. I have had the great privilege of working with the wonderful Flight coordinators and flight crews of Angel MedFlight multiple times within a short period of time. They have made, what others would consider difficult and tedious transfers, a breeze in the park! Always putting the patient and family first. Very accommodating to us here at the hospital and working out a schedule that will allow the patient to get to their destination the quickest way possible. And the flight crew were amazing at bedside! Making sure the patient was comfortable and that the family was at ease! I will definitely be using their services again.read more

Having now used the services of Angel MedFlight, I HIGHLY recommend them! There was a great deal of stress surrounding our situation and from the moment I contacted Angel MedFlight, not only were they supportive, I was amazed at the lengths they go to handle every single detail. Our case required next day travel and a coordinated physician/hospital discharge. Angel MedFlight coordinated directly with our physicians and hospital to assure every "T" crossed and "I" dotted. From there, Angel MedFlight coordinates direct patient pick-up at the hospital, medical support in the transfer of the patient (town car for the other two passengers), excellent care, outstanding flight crew, medical support throughout the flight and upon landing, and transfer to the home facility. All of this done with the highest level of customer service, care and understanding. If we ever require a medical flight in the future, all that will be needed is single call to Angel MedFlight. Caring, compassionate and very reasonably priced.read more

Angel MedFlight was an answered prayer for my husband and I when we needed a quick transfer cross country for rehab following a car accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury. I placed the call with fear in my heart and was greeted with kindness and reassurance that everything would be taken care of to get us to rehab within 24 hours. Throughout this journey there have been so many obstacles that have been difficult to navigate. It was so nice to be able to pick up the phone and have someone tell me not to worry and that they would handle this obstacle for me. Our onboard clinicians were professional, sympathetic to my husband's needs, and offered great suggestions on documenting his journey. I will never be able to thank Carl, David, Carl, and Andrew for their compassion and continued support. Thank you will never seem adequate for what they did for our family. Angel MedFlight will forever hold a special place in my heart.read more

My family and I were in Florida on vacation when our 4 1/2 month old was diagnosed with leukemia. We are from Chicago and were very worried about how to get our infant home so that he could start treatment and allow us to have a support system around us. He needed to start treatment within 48 hours. If he started while in Florida, we would've been stuck there for at least three months. Thankfully, Angel MedFlight came to our rescue. They worked directly with the social worker at the hospital to make all the arrangements both at the hospital in Florida and the one in Chicago. The staff during the flight was extremely professional and help put my mind ar ease. Most importantly, they were amazing with our son. The whole process was extremely smooth and our family cannot more grateful for their help during this crisis.read more

Angel MedFlight was absolutely amazing to work with. During one of the most difficult times for our family, Angel MedFlight helped us by not only providing air transport, but also by handling every single detail that started with bedside pickup in Seattle, WA and ended with bedside drop-off in Denver, CO. And there were a lot of details along the way. Each staff member at Angel MedFlight was professional, knowledgeable, and caring and always kept us up-to-date with phone calls and e-mails. Our experience with Angel MedFlight was beyond wonderful.read more
