However, if you need ground ambulance transportation and it is not an emergency, it may not benefit you to dial 911. Often a 911 provider is required to take you to the closest hospital. However, many individuals wish to choose which hospital they would like to go to.
1-800-AMBULANCE is an example of a nationwide network of ambulance companies who provide non-emergency transportation.
Patients that need non emergency transportation have a variety of reasons. Back injuries, hip injuries, and respirator dependancies are just a few of them. Also, kidney patients need transportation to dialysis centers for routine checkups.
The same aircrafts that take emergency patients from hospital to hospital can also fly non-emergency as well. They have on them Intensive Care Unit and Coronary Care Unit kits. Onboard is a stretcher, made up to look like a bed, for the comfort of the passenger in need of transport. Also, a flight nurse and/or flight paramedic will be on the flight to tend to the patient for extra safety.

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.
