AirMed International acquires Air Medical

AirMed International, a fee-for-service air ambulance airline based in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, has acquired Air Medical, based in San Antonio, which is the largest fixed-wing air medical transport company in Texas. Air Medical has three jets and two King Air turboprops equipped for medical care, based at San Antonio International Airport, while AirMed has a much larger fleet, with an array of aircraft, at 30 locations across the USA.

Both companies conduct international transfers and are affiliated with the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). AirMed owns all of its aircraft, and employs its dispatch, flight and medical teams directly.

Denis Treadwell, president, AirMed, said, “Strategically, this acquisition will allow AirMed International to serve growing requirements for critical care transport as we meet the needs of healthcare in the Texas region and enhance support for area military medical transports. The compassionate, dedicated and experienced Air Medical team that chairman Joe McCart has built is quite compatible with our professional medical and flight teams.”

Joe McCart, chairman, Air Medical, added, “Denise Treadwell’s AirMed International team has integrity, financial strength and commitment to patient care. Consequently, this sale will benefit our customers and our employees very well into the future.”
