AIR AMBULANCE SERVICE

Global Life Flight, through its relationships with certificated air carriers in Mexico and the U.S., offers worldwide air ambulance service 24 hours a day, 7 days of the week.  Once a flight is confirmed, Global Life Flight dispatches one of our specialized medical teams from one of our bases in Mexico.  When calling our International Flight Department, our Trilingual (English, Spanish, French) flight coordinators will assist you in determining the needs of your patient to determine the optimum mode of transportation and will provide you with an immediate estimate of your trip costs.  In addition, our flight coordinators are experienced in working with our air carrier partners in arranging landings at foreign airports at any time of day or night and locating the closest suitable airport to a rural or remote destination.  Each flight team is staffed by a Physician, Nurse and/or Paramedic depending on the patient’s needs.  In addition, the state-of-the-art Life Port Stretcher system and advanced medical equipment provide our medical teams the necessary tools to handle a wide variety of patient medical need, including cardiovascular and neonatal care, to name a few.

BEDSIDE TO BEDSIDE SERVICE

At Global Life Flight we know you are experiencing a stressful situation, so we coordinate communications with the air carrier and the medical facilities involved.

COMMERCIAL AIRLINE STRETCHER TRANSPORT AND MEDICAL ESCORT SERVICES
Sometimes a patient's condition doesn't warrant the use of an air ambulance, but the patient still needs to be transported on a stretcher and needs medical attention while returning home or to another medical facility.  In this case, Global Life Flight can make arrangements on commercial airlines to place a stretcher and provide medical staff to assist the patient throughout his or her trip. In addition, Global Life Flight offers Medical Escort Services to patients who don't need a stretcher, but do need someone to monitor the patient, administer medications and assist the patient with all aspects of their travel.
GROUND AMBULANCE SERVICE
Beside our aeromedical services, Global Life Flight has a fleet of Critical Care Transport Units strategically located in Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta and Cancun. We know that is very important to provide the best quality to our patients, with the most convenient price, our Units of Critical Care Transport satisfy those needs. We have ground units for those persons with incapacity like the using of wheelchairs; we have a hydraulic ramp on each ground ambulance. The Physicians, Nurses and Paramedics in charge of this service, have the same experience used in the aeromedical services, and they follow the same medical protocols as the rest of our services.
SPECIALTY CARE TEAMS

Global Life Flight Specialty Care Teams are readily available to provide ground and fixed wing transport of critically ill adult, neonatal or pediatric patients. A call to our communications center will put you in touch with the adult/ neonatal/pediatric Medical Control Physician who will assess your patient's needs and determine the best mode of transport.

Our Neonatal Critical Care Flight Teams are staffed with a Neonatologist and a specially trained nurse, who carry special equipment designed for the transport of these patients.
