Distressed situations such as emergencies will always require a quick response, and quality medical attention. Because of that, hospitals are not the only ones offering medical transportation services for the use of everyone.
There are many government organizations offering their services for those in need of medical transportation. The U.S. Department of Transportation has a toll free hotline for patients requiring medical transport and this has been a great help to many citizens since it was launched in 2002. They specialize in making it well known to everyone that services such as medical transportation are available. Their most popular feature is the American Air Ambulance, which aids ailing patients and emergency situations in domestic and international inter-facility medical transport, responding to every need and requiring any level of assistance. They are manned specially by medical professionals like nurses, paramedical personnel and doctors who provide necessary medical support and care to patients while in flight. All these years, they have helped in situations of varying intensity, from stranded and injured hikers to severely afflicted cancer patients. They also carry out door-to-door service for patients using air medical transportation, relocating ill patients of different kinds.
