Air ambulance providers often work closely with the administrators, case managers, and social workers of hospitals. Patients who need advanced or specialized care are routinely taken to hospitals where they can receive the care they need. For instance, a cancer patient may go to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment.
I have found this link below to pages with a list of hospitals and rankings to be helpful when considering hospitals around the United States:

If a patient has no money and needs to be transfered via air ambulance, it sometimes makes sense for the hospital to pay for the transfer. The cost of an air ambulance can be quite expensive, so the benefit of transporting a patient must be greater than the cost for hospitals.
I would like to thank everyone involved from turning a potentially difficult experience into an enjoyable one. My mother,Mary, and I enjoyed the flight, and the flight nurse, was terrific. He really allayed all our fears, and we felt perfect confidence in him.
The pilot and first officer were also wonderful and instilled great confidence in us. All in all, it was a marvelous trip and we can’t thank you enough!!!
This letter commends the efficiency and professionalism of your organization during the recent transport of our aunt, Lisa Cordero, from New York City to Cleveland. The flight crew was courteous and helpful. Your flight coordinators were exceptionally competent in arranging a quite difficult transfer.
Where we have had frustrations with lawyers, bankers, and doctors, we had only the most ‘can do’ attitude from all of your staff. We have recommended your service to a colleague and will continue to do so without hesitation.
