Neonate Transport a Success!

Some people believe in miracles and some only believe when a miracle happens to them. We like to say that we make miracles happen. In the beginning of the week, Angel Medflight received a flight request for a beautiful baby. The mother noticed that her child was very irritable and dark circles were forming around her eyes. The child’s mother became worried and took the child to the hospital to be examined. The doctors had come up with a very likely hypothesis: a possible neuroblastoma.

Neuroblastoma is a cancer that resides in young children, especially babies. It is a disease in which malignant (
cancer) cells form in the nerve tissue of the adrenal gland, neck, chest, or spinal cord. The mother called many companies requesting to have her daughter transported to a medical facility that offered specific, higher level of care for this condition. Every company that the mother called wanted a large sum of money up front … then she found Angel Medflight. Angel Medflight put two of its top nurses on a flight within two hours of her request. The baby is now in the hands of the most skilled doctors in the United States able to treat this condition. The mother could not thank Angel Medflight enough for what it did for her little angel.

Our company, unlike others, does not treat its patients like a financial opportunity; our job satisfaction only comes when we know we have made an impact on a person’s precious life.
