International Medical Rescue Services Give Hope to Patients Requiring Urgent Medical Care

Haifa, Israel (PressExposure) September 24, 2009 -- Everyone wants their loved ones to have access to the best healthcare possible, especially in critical or emergency situations. However, what are the relatives of a critically ill or injured patient to do when their loved one is located at a facility that is not properly equipped, or does not have the experienced specialists available to treat the patient?

The Shemer Medical Center – a leading medical tourism provider in Israel – provides a wide range of comprehensive international rescue services that brings back hope into the families of such patients. Amongst many medical services, Shemer offers both emergency and nonemergency services, 24 hours a day to patients located anywhere in the world.

Working closely with two aviation companies, Shemer provides international Air Ambulance Services to patients in both critical and noncritical situations, who are looking to be flown into Israel to benefit from the Country’s leading standards of healthcare. All air ambulance patients are transported by a private jet equipped with all of the leading state-of-the-art equipment required to treat them. In addition, Shemer’s aero-medical crew consists of some of the leading doctors, nurses, paramedics, and pilots in the industry.

Another option that Shemer offers for patients looking to be transported to Israel is the Medical Escorts service. Patients are accompanied by a personal doctor, nurse, or paramedic escort, or by a combination of escorts (should the patient’s condition require) on a commercial flight. In addition to accompanying the patient and providing him/her with medical treatment and monitoring, the escorts coordinate all of the pre and post flight arrangements, including: bedside to bedside transfer, supplying the required medical equipment, booking all tickets, and more.

Another service provided by Shemer is International Flying Doctors, which is an excellent option when the cost of an air ambulance is too pricey, or when the patient’s family is disappointed with the current treatment that their loved one is receiving. Shemer flies in an Israeli physician - who is a leading specialist for the patient’s condition, to treat him/her and provide consultations at his/her bedside.

Shemer’s mission is to provide international rescue services to each patient with the highest standards of immediate medical care at relatively low costs. Similarly, each and every patient and their families are treated with a personal touch that makes all the difference.
