REACH Air Medical Services Now Collaborating with Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center at Nellis Air Force Base
REACH Air Medical Services (REACH), an air medical transportation provider, announces that it is collaborating with Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center at Nellis Air Force Base. Through the collaborative efforts, REACH has been given exclusive transfer rights for patients flown from William Bee Ririe Hospital in Ely, NV, to Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center located at Nellis Air Force Base.
“We are proud to work with Mike O’Callaghan Military Medical Center to provide air medical transfers for William Bee Ririe patients that require a higher level of care,” says Tom Liebman, regional director for REACH parent company, Global Medical Response. “We embrace the concept of readiness and know that our work together will enable our military medical force to be prepared at a moment’s notice. We have no doubt it will save lives on the battlefield and at facilities like Mike O’Callaghan through increased patient volume and hands-on experience. This is truly something we fully support.”
On October 28, crew members from the REACH base in Ely participated in their first specialized training at Nellis Air Force Base, where they were able to share best practices for the safe loading and unloading of patients from air medical aircraft. Starting in early November, REACH will begin transferring select patients from the critical access hospital in Ely to Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center for specialized care and treatment unavailable in Northern Nevada.
