REMSA Health is proud to announce that once again, Care Flight, a division of REMSA Health has achieved re-accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). The re-accreditation will last until July 28, 2026 when Care Flight will again be eligible for another re-accreditation.
“By participating in third-party reviews and accreditations, we have the opportunity to have our program objectively evaluated and recognize the dedication of our providers and staff for providing exceptional care to the communities we serve,” said Vanessa Coyle, director of operations, Care Flight. “Care Flight is committed to the highest clinical excellence and safety standards.”
CAMTS is a collective of nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the quality and safety of medical transport services. The Commission offers a voluntary program to evaluate compliance with standards demonstrating the ability to deliver services of a specific quality. In preparation for the CAMTS site survey, Care Flight submitted a packet of information that included policies, procedures, shift schedules, quality metrics, and education records. The submission is reviewed in areas including program management and corporate ethics, quality management, patient care, medical direction, and communication and aviation standards.
More than 42 years ago, Care Flight began as a shared program between area hospitals to provide reliable critical care transport services across rural Nevada. Since then it has grown into a comprehensive 24/7 transport service with experienced medical professionals, skilled pilots, and state-of-the-art technology. Care Flight responds to more than 1,500 transport calls per year and serves citizens across northern Nevada and northeastern California.
