Air Ambulance Transportation Services

Air Ambulance

In addition to ground ambulance service, EMHC offers transports by fixed wing (airplane) air ambulance. Our aircraft is medically equipped and based at Wilson Air Center in Memphis, TN. Fixed wing transports are used for inter-facility transfers when the patient needs care that is not available at the sending facility. We specialize in critical care, burns, hospice, organ transplant, spinal and brain injuries, trauma, pediatric and adult transports. Non-emergency air transports are also available.
