Providing a longer lifeline to gravely ill patients.
Our mission at Boston MedFlight is to send the right vehicle to the right patient at the right time, and to get them to the right hospital.
Boston MedFlight’s Citation CJ4 allows us to deliver ICU-level care above the clouds for long-range critical care transports. Our missions are always bedside-to-bedside. We’ll land at the nearest airport and proceed immediately to the sending hospital via ambulance. We collaborate with the patient’s medical team to formulate a plan and determine the advanced care that is needed during transport (for example, he or she may be on a mechanical ventilator). From there it’s back to the airport for the return transport with another ambulance transport leg at the receiving facility.
Although the transport may end when we deliver our patient, our job isn’t complete. As with all of our transports, we follow up with the sending and receiving teams after every mission.
