From the Central Valley to the Sierras: Air Med Team

, : From the Central Valley to the Sierras: Air Med Team. Air Medical Journal 20(1): 22-24

Effective treatment of the critically ill or injured patient and rapid transport to definitive care have been the goals of the air medical industry since its inception. For the past 6 years, Air Med Team (AMT), a service of Doctors Medical Center (DMC) in Modesto, Calif., has delivered timely and often lifesaving care to the largely rural area of the Central Valley and the Sierras. AMT was established in an effort to complete the spectrum of health care services offered by DMC and ensure easy access to the critical care services available at this facility. Established in February 1994, AMT strives to provide a safe and efficient approach to patient care in the prehospital environment. More than 4200 accident-free missions and 1900 patient transports have been completed since our first activation on March 14, 1994.
