If the patient is not in critical condition and cannot or will not fly, Ambulance Medical Escort Service is a cost-saving alternative to air ambulance travel. It is also an ideal way to move a patient from one facility to another, within a distance that would not be practical for air or rail travel.

Long distance ground is a great choice when the patient medical transport requires less than 24 hours of driving time and/or the trip is 1500 miles or under.

Depending on the length of the trip and the total distance to be traveled, each patient will be administered to by one or two trained Registered Nurses or Critical Care Paramedics.

Only patients who are in need of Basic Life Support qualify for Long Distance Ground. Those patients requiring a ventilator or having a tracheostomy are not eligible.

All patients are accompanied by a team of three medical personnel, two of whom share the driving responsibilities. Our ambulance crews strictly adhere to BLS protocols.

Patients with the following conditions are ideal candidates for Long Distance Ground medical transport:

  • Chronic Illness
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Chronic Lung and Heart Conditions
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Dementia
  • Mobility Issues
