Nov. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Elite Medical Transport, a leading provider of fixed wing air and ground ambulance services, is adding another plane dedicated to air medical transport with the opening of a fixed-wing air ambulance base in El Paso, TX.

The base is located at the El Paso International Airport. Utilizing the Beechcraft King Air 200, it will enhance the provision of critical care by providing for a rapid means of transportation for longer transports. Elite Medical Transport has contracted with a Part 135 operator to operate the aircraft and provide pilots for the service, while Elite Medical Transport will provide the medical crew. The new plane is outfitted with multiple LifePort stretcher systems that allow for the simultaneous transport of two patients or two neonate isolette’s. A first for the region and a significant enhancement to the services offered to the communities the company serves.

"We have been serving Southern New Mexico and West Texas since 2007 and are excited to add another resource for our hospital partners who often receive patients located from rural communities located far from El Paso, TX." "Prompt access to critical care can often mean the different between life and death, said Elite Medical Transport Vice President Rob Campion.

Elite Medical Transport fixed-wing services include a registered nurse, paramedic and pilot. They provide rapid transport to medical facilities and critical care inter-facility transfers. Each aircraft is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and the crewmembers are trained in advanced pre-hospital care so medical care can be provided en route to the hospital.
