What does Air Evac Lifeteam mean when it says that it is the largest independent air ambulance company in the U.S.?
Air Evac Lifeteam is comprised of more than 85 base locations, each of which is owned and operated by Air Evac Lifeteam, which supplies the aircraft, pilots and medical crew. The company’s bases are not financially tied to or supported by a particular receiving hospital. As such, the company is known for its ability to impartially work and collaborate with a variety of health care providers, including over 1,000 hospitals and over 700 EMS agencies, to place the patient first providing individualized care in transporting patients to the most appropriate medical facility. No other company in the U.S. has more base locations which are financially independent from hospitals under a common brand.
