A short form of the term medical evacuation is a medevac. This refers to everything from patients who need to be airlifted from catastrophies to routine non emergency transports. Other terms for a medical evacuation include air ambulance, medflight and medical flight.
Medevac services have been widely available since the 1970’s. The amount of companies that perform this service has nearly doubled in the past ten years.
There are a number of Evac services that are performed by helicopters. If you have an emergency and need to be airlifted, get on the phone and dial 911.
There are not only evacs for patients after a catastrophe but before as well. A medevac can also be a patient who needs, for instance, to be taken away from a hospital when a hurricane is coming. Many families prefer to move a family member to a safer location rather than deal with the circumstances of a catastrophe.

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.
