Leader in Advanced Transport Medicine

HelicopterAir Care & Mobile Care (ACMC) provides Advanced Transport Medicine to Greater Cincinnati and Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. Celebrating its 30th anniversary on November 1, 2014, ACMC was one of the first transport medicine programs in the country to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) in four levels of transport – helicopter, mobile intensive care unit, advanced life support and basic life support. Our clinical crews are some of the most experienced in the industry, with access to equipment and medications that aren't offered by anyone else in the country. ACMC transports more than 10,000 patients a year by ground and 1,000 a year by helicopter, and earned the designation 2013 Association of Air Medical Services (AAMS) Program of the Year.
