The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) has awarded new accreditation to one medical transport service and reaccreditation to 23 services at the CAMTS April 2019 board meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

CAMTS accreditation helps medical transport organizations ensure the highest safety and customer care through a rigorous outside audit process. Reaccreditation is required every three years to ensure operators continue to meet a continually raised bar of best practices and standards.

“Accreditation means an outside set of eyes has evaluated the program with a focus on safe, quality, and standardized operations,” said Margaret O’Donnell of Lifeguard Air Emergency Services, which achieved reaccreditation this spring. “CAMTS sets the bar and accreditation is acknowledgement it has been achieved.”

New CAMTS accreditation

CAMTS is pleased to announce the new accreditation of UT Lifestar, a rotary-wing service in headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee. UT Lifestar provides service to East Tennessee, Southeast Kentucky, Southwest Virginia, and Western North Carolina with a fleet of Airbus EC135 and Bell 407 helicopters.
