Transporting a patient from Point A to Point B is very complex. However, we have escorts who stay with the patient via any means of travel necessary, whether it be a train, cruise ship, airline, or other types of commercial transportation.
We can even install stretchers aboard commercial airlines. Additionally, we arrange details for luggage, pets, hotels, insurance, evacuations, etc. to be taken care of. Every aspect of the transfer is included in your service; it’s just one way we provide complete peace of mind during an otherwise stressful situation.
