Patient transport

More than a third of the SAM.I. member associations are powerful rescue organizations performing patient transport in addition to emergency rescue services.

These include transport services to hospitals, physicians, the transfer of patients between hospitals, for example for special treatments (inter-hospital transfer) as well as ground-based and air-based intensive care transports in special vehicles or aircraft providing the appropriate equipment for the transport and intensive medical care of patients in critical condition.

In the case of illness or accidents abroad some associations such as the ASB Germany, the ASBÖ Austria or the White Cross in South Tyrol, offer special repatriation services carried out by ground-based or air ambulance depending on the distance and urgency.

Current information on the individual services of the SAM.I. member organizations can be found on the pages of the member associations.
