American CareSource Holdings Takes to the Skies with AirCARE1 Signing

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American CareSource Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANCI), the nation’s leading ancillary health care system, today announced the expansion of its transportation services category with the signing of AirCARE1 International, a worldwide ambulance service specializing in the airborne intensive care transportation.

“Transportation is one of our 31 specialty service categories at Ancillary Care Services,” said President and CEO David S. Boone. “Our new contract with AirCARE1 International allows us to broaden the spectrum of services in the transportation category by including not only ground transportation, but in instances of significant distance, air transportation. The highly qualified staff of AirCARE1 International is a valuable addition to the Ancillary Care Services network.”

“Jake Jacobsen and I formed AirCARE1 International to ensure patients receive the highest quality of care during their air ambulance transport experience,” said President and Co-Founder Denise Waye, BSN, RN. “By researching the needs of the industry, we have been able to provide quality of patient care that is unmatched in the industry. We are excited to be a part of a network that places a premium on quality transportation service providers like AirCARE1 International.”

AirCARE1 International’s goal is simply to provide quality patient care by using the best aircraft, the best pilots, the best equipment and the very best medical team to provide that care. AirCARE1 International utilizes Lear 35A aircraft to transport medically compromised patients in a pleasant, medically safe environment. The Learjet uses a loading ramp designed specifically for safely loading patients into the aircraft to prevent dangerous tipping and tilting. The door to the Learjet is wider than standard commercial aircraft. “Unlike many others,” says Vice President and Co-Founder Jake Jacobsen, “AirCARE1 International’s Learjets fly above commercial altitudes for smoother flights and have greater range for faster flights with fewer stops minimizing patient transport time.”

Onboard, AirCARE1 International uses a customized patient care system that includes an exclusive double thick mattress, an integrated knee bracket for patient positioning, and an arch monitoring system that attaches directly to the stretcher so patients are continuously monitored every step of the way while the AirCARE1 medical team transports the patient bedside to bedside. The AirCARE1 team includes pilots, critical care nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists as well as physicians.

Additionally, AirCARE1 International provides noise-cancelling headsets with therapeutic music as well as touch therapy during flight. These comfort measures provide an additional level of care to our patients while providing peace of mind for them as well as their family members.
