Dr. Gregory Grant, Medical Director

Getting sick in another city, province, country or continent is one of life’s most stressful events. Getting home to family, friends, and support as quickly as possible is very important and the principle goal of most patients and their families. We help people achieve that goal, not only in a timely manner, but safely and with all of the necessary medical support. That support can range from a medical attendant on a commercial flight to a fully mobile intensive care unit with everything that a hospital can provide. We have nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and a variety of physicians in different specialties that we can mobilize to provide whatever medical support the situation requires. Our primary concern is to make sure that the transfer is done safely. To that end, our medical team talk directly to the physicians and nurses to make sure everything is set up for the transfer. Sometimes our medical team is able to offer advice on care management even before our team gets there. Our goal is not just to transfer the patient but to continue a care plan and treatment during the flight and transfer. Many of our team members work in the major referral hospitals in British Columbia and bring the most up-to-date medical knowledge and skills with them. Our team takes care of all of the logistics including medications, ambulances at each end of the trip if needed, oxygen, and all of the medical equipment. We are also equipped for any in-flight emergencies with all of the necessary emergency equipment.
