Celebrating our Milestones

As the team celebrates 4 years in the air, they’re also celebrating 1,000 completed flights. That’s 1,000 patients who needed to be moved from the scene of an injury or between facilities and whose transportation needs required a helicopter. This team was recently awarded CAMTS accreditation, recognizing Hackensack University Medical Center’s air medical program for its excellence in providing helicopter EMS services.
