Meet Richard Oeltjen

What Makes Our Flight Coordination Team Different

Meet Richard, One of Our Flight Coordinators

Every day Richard works with our team of flight coordinators and facilities across the country to help patients reach life-changing treatment. He is a Registered Nurse and came to Angel MedFlight six years ago from Mayo Clinic Hospital where he treated patients as a flight nurse for a decade.

Richard joined the team with twenty three years of experience working with patients in radiology and critical care settings. He wanted to join the flight coordination team to support more critical care patients by working with families and sending and receiving facilities everywhere.

Our Flight Coordination Team is here to help

Our team of flight coordinators is here 24/7 to make the healthcare journey seamless and simple to navigate so your patient can reach the highest quality of care as soon as possible. We understand that patients and healthcare professionals find us on the most challenging days of their lives, and we do whatever we can to make things easier.

That’s why our flight coordinators are here around the clock to coordinate the entire air and ground transport for patient families and their healthcare providers. They also team with our in-house patient advocates to manage the complete insurance pre-authorization process for you. Our flight coordinators frequently make their start in healthcare, emergency medical services, or aviation.



Our team members are here because they care about our patients.

Our team members like Richard are the reason why Angel MedFlight is the highest-rated air ambulance company in patient satisfaction online. At every level of our business, we hire compassionate experienced professionals. Every one of our employees is here to provide life-changing transports for our patients and to support their healthcare providers in driving the best possible patient outcomes.
