Olympian Amy Van Dyken and Angel MedFlight
As a patient advocate for spinal cord injuries (SCI), Van Dyken-Rouen is teaming up with the medical transport provider to share her positive message with healthcare providers, critical care patients, and their families. Since her spinal cord injury in 2014, Van Dyken-Rouen has emerged as a powerful champion for the patient community she calls “differently-abled”.
“I really believe my accident happened so that I can be an example of never giving up and always moving straight ahead,” said Amy Van Dyken Rouen. “I’m proud to help that message reach even further with Angel MedFlight because they are so special in what they do and how they do it. They didn’t care that I was a six-time Olympic gold medalist, or that my husband had won two Super Bowl rings. Whoever you are, they’re going to do whatever is right for you.”
Angel MedFlight partners with hospitals and healthcare facilities to support critical care patients in reaching the life-changing care they need. The company transported Van Dyken-Rouen to Craig Hospital for her own rehabilitation in 2014, and is ready to support her ongoing efforts in patient advocacy.
