AirMed International's base in San Antonio has added a Nextant 400XTi medical jet to its fleet to provide emergent and non-emergent patients with medical flights in addition to transporting transplant teams farther.

"The Nextant 400XTi has increased performance that adds to AirMed International's capabilities in the region. It will join a Beechjet and two Beechcraft King Airs at the San Antonio location," said AirMed President Denise Treadwell. 

"We will be able to build on our footprint, which extends to Mexico, Central America and  over water to South America," she said. "From our San Antonio base, we also fly throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean."

Improved Version with Longer Range

The Nextant 400XTi is an improved version of the Beechjet 400 and now offers AirMed International a longer range medical transport with more efficient and quieter engines and more modern cockpit avionics. The interior of the Nextant 400XTi has also been upgraded for international medical transportation by Elliott Aviation in Moline, Ill. 

Treadwell added, "AirMed San Antonio provides 24/7 patient services to many of the major hospitals in the region, including CHRISTUS Health, and additionally it performs organ procurement missions." AirMed International is a member of the Texas Association of Air Medical Services and one of the largest providers of fixed-wing medical services in Texas. 

Partnering with CHRISTUS Health 

"Fostering this partnership with AirMed International is just another example of the far reaches CHRISTUS Health will go to for the benefit of all of our patients," said Cris Daskevich, CHRISTUS Health SVP of Maternal Services and CEO of  The Children's Hospital of San Antonio. "This relationship allows us to provide timely, state-of-the-art care throughout our domestic and international ministries, insuring that all patients, regardless of location, receive consistent, quality-driven care."

Daskevich added, "Our focus is to extend the absolute best care possible to our pediatric patients throughout our CHRISTUS Health ministries in Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico and both Central and South America. For our smallest patients, who often have critical needs, time is a critical resource. This partnership with AirMed will allow us to provide care to our pediatric patients quickly in their time of need."
