10 Reasons to Choose Us
Air Ambulance & Medevac Services
1. AeroCare is nationally accredited.
AeroCare is one of less than 65 programs worldwide to be accredited by the prestigious Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). CAMTS is a non-profit organization that is voluntary and has set the very highest standards of quality and safety in the air ambulance industry. Because the aeromedical industry remains mainly un-regulated, being CAMTS accredited ensures that your patient, family, customer is going to be transported in the safest environment, with highly trained pilots and medical crew who adhere to the CAMTS gold-standard guidelines.
2. AeroCare is experienced.
We have been in operation for 26 years and have transported over 10,000 patients worldwide with impeccable safety systems and safety record. Read what our customers are saying about AeroCare.

Every flight is operated under the medical control of AeroCare’s Medical Director, Dr. Silvio Morales, MD, FACEP. Dr. Morales has been Board Certified in Emergency Medicine since 1999. He’s currently the Medical Director and Department Chair of Emergency Medicine at Silver Cross Hospital, a Level II Trauma Center in New Lenox, Illinois. AeroCare’s medical teams undergo extensive continuing education as required by CAMTS. The medical equipment on board the aircraft is “state-of-the-art” and allows AeroCare to transport very critical patients offering a transparent continuum of care.

Our pilots are carefully chosen, very experienced, and highly trained.
