About AirCARE1 California Air Ambulance

AirCARE1 is committed to providing California air ambulance service to and from Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Indio destinations such as JFK Memorial Hospital in Indio, Eisenhower Primary Care and Stat Urgent Care of Palm Desert and Kaiser Permanente and Desert Regional Medical Care of Palm Springs. AirCARE1 also coordinates all the details of your trip including flight times, ground transportation, international logistics and refueling considerations. Planning services include travel both to and from the Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Indio areas.

Patient Safety Comes First

Patient safety always comes first with AirCARE1. All employees receive continuous training in the latest medical advances and treatment options. AirCARE1 recruits top talent with demonstrated skills, and many skilled medical personnel seek employment with AirCARE1. Our commitment to service, holistic care and state-of-the-art technology ensures the highest degree of safety for patients. The Airborne Critical Care Unit monitors the health of every patient on every flight. These are just a few of the reasons that AirCARE1 has become only the second preferred provider in the United States for the International Assistance Group, or IAG. AirCARE1 International also enjoys preferred-provider status with many top insurance companies and other assistance groups.

Dual Accreditation Provides an Extra Level of Care

AirCARE1 International commits to the highest standard of care. Dual accreditation from the European Aeromedical Institute and the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems demonstrates an extraordinary level of service because few services achieve this level of endorsement.

The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems, or CAMTS, is a U.S. nonprofit agency that audits and accredits aircraft medical transport services worldwide. Preparations for accreditation take from four to six months during which the agency examines all aspects of patient care, aircraft safety and equipment maintenance and inspections. Accreditation is good for three years, but it can be renewed.

EURAMI, or the European Aeromedical Institute, is based in Germany. EURAMI promotes research, training and safe transport on fixed-wing aircraft throughout the world. The guidelines cover transportation practices, the quality of healthcare and staffing practices of air ambulance companies. The accreditation also lasts for three years, and AirCARE1 International recently received the news that both EURAMI and CAMTS accreditations have been renewed.

Committed to Holistic Care

AirCARE1 offers California medevac service with an innovative slant that focuses on each patient’s well-being and comfort. You have options for holistic care that include noise-cancelling headphones, aromatherapy, hand massages and other services that help to relieve stress and reduce the anxiety of travel. Our holistic care treatments help to reduce the stress and anxiety patients may experience when traveling.

Providing Ambulance Transportation to All Types of Patients

AirCARE1 Learjets are equipped to transport all types of patients with various medical conditions. You can schedule service for neonates and infants, bariatric or obese patients, children, adults and the geriatric or elderly. People with Alzheimer’s, other types of dementia and other mental conditions are also candidates for AirCARE1 ambulance service.

  • Neonatal and Infant Care – Advanced level-3 neonatal intensive care units, NICU incubators and trained staff can transport infants and neonatal patients safely. Medical equipment includes the Cross Vent 2i ventilator, Neonate Isollete and Propaq monitor.
  • Pediatric Patients – Children have unique medical needs that include empathetic staff members. AirCARE1 offers highly trained staff who are experts at dealing with children and assessing their well-being based on age-appropriate behavioral standards.
  • Bariatric Service – Morbidly obese patients face daunting issues when traveling. There are special needs for handling patients physically and safely. Aircraft with narrow doors and lanes are usually not wide enough to accommodate patients who weigh more than 400 pounds. The cargo doors of the Learjet permit easy access to patients over 400 pounds.
  • Geriatric Needs – Older patients have many medical conditions that make travel risky. These include heart failure, breathing problems and chronic conditions. AirCARE1 Learjets have medical equipment that matches those of many hospitals including a supply of medications. The staff is trained to administer drugs safely. During the flight, staff members monitor key conditions such as skin integrity, dehydration, hypoxia, delirium and other conditions.

Ultra Modern High-Tech Medical Equipment

AirCARE1 patients receive the same kind of care that you’d expect to receive in a hospital or specialty clinic. Each patient is sheltered in the proprietary “In-Flight Emergency Room” where he or she is attended by a paramedic, nurse and/or other essential medical specialist. The state-of-the-art medical equipment includes proper medical storage areas, Aerosled stretcher, Side Gas Bar and Patient Loading Utility System. Your trip will be as comfortable as possible, and you can relax knowing that each aircraft is equipped with medical monitoring equipment for even those patients with the most fragile health.

First Class Atmosphere in AirCARE1s Fleet of Learjets

The Learjet provides roomy comfort, and fly at higher altitudes, which reduces turbulence and generates a smoother ride. The interiors of the aircraft provide luxurious travel with well-appointed interiors, quiet travel and top amenities for patients and their families. Learjets travel at faster speeds and require fewer fuel stops, so travel times are reduced. Patients get to their destinations faster. These Learjets are equipped with thick, 4-inch mattresses, adjustable knee lifts and monitor brackets on each stretcher. Our LiftPort system makes moving patients easy, and the knee lift prevents patients from sliding during takeoffs and landings. The loading ramp is designed to prevent tilting, tipping and wobbling when moving the stretcher on or off the aircraft.

Commercial Medical Escort Service

AirCARE1 offers companion services for commercial aircraft flights when patients don’t need a dedicated air ambulance to travel. This service features FAA-approved oxygen and other medical services, first or business class travel, continuous care and expedited medical clearances. You can book this service for both domestic or worldwide flights for the following types of patients:

  • Patients cleared by their physicians to travel with a medical escort
  • Those who need oxygen therapy of less than five litres per minute
  • People free of contagious diseases
  • Patients who are socially responsible and non-combative
  • Those able to sit upright during takeoff, landing and taxiing
  • Patients without trapped gases caused by a bowel obstruction, gas embolism or pneumothorax

Our team of medical professionals who serve as medical escorts are fully trained and experienced, and they also show strong empathy and try to make each patient as comfortable as possible with holistic care during each flight.

California: Destination or Point of Origin

President and Founder Denise Waye worked as a critical care nurse for more than 10 years. She has also worked in ICUs, CCUs and EDs as well as working as an in-flight nurse. Denise discovered that safe, holistic and empathetic care was seldom an option during air ambulance transport, and she resolved to change the dynamic.
