We work very hard to keep our costs down by utilizing every flight and offering our less expensive services to the customer when they are medically appropriate.
Punta Gorda, FL (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Air Critical Care LLC, an Air Medical Service headquartered in Florida has seen a steady increase in demand for its Air Medical Services even as the cost for such services has increased over the last year.
Air Critical Care has attributed the increase in demand for air medical services which almost doubled this last year on the companies’ ability to work with its vendors and the customer to provide the most value. In most cases customers tell the company that they are thousands of dollars less than the next competitor.
The company is providing a variety of Air Medical Services such as Air Ambulance, Commercial Medical Escorts and International Commercial Stretcher Service, which is a service that is only provided by foreign airlines. The air ambulance service is a medical service in a specially configured aircraft, functioning like a mobile intensive care unit, and the Commercial Medical Escort in which a professional air medical team member accompanies the patient on a commercial airline. The International Commercial Stretcher service is an option that can save tens of thousands of dollars for the international customers but is not offered by any US airlines.
The key to Air Critical Cares success is listening to the customers’ needs. In some cases, customers have financial limitations that they are reluctant to discuss. By being conscientious of our customer’s individual situations and with their understanding that the excellent services we provide can be expensive, due to the expensive cost of fuel, we work closely with the family to find the best and most economical method of transport.
The company just this week acquired a Non-Emergency Transport Ground Vehicle to transport local customers and will provide long distance transports to those customers the can’t afford the air service or would prefer not to fly.
Other factors such as the aging population worldwide will continue to play a role in the increasing demand for these air medical services. In 2000, an estimated 605 million people were 60 years of age or older, and that number is projected to grow to nearly 2 billion by 2050 using statistics provided by the U.S. department of Health and Human Services.
Michael Peat, President of Air Critical Care said, “We work very hard to keep our costs down by utilizing every flight and offering our less expensive services to the customer when they are medically appropriate."
