MedFlight911 Air Ambulance Medical Director Dr. Charles Finch Named to Des Moines University Board of Trustees
Here at MedFlight911, we believe that top-notch air ambulance service starts with having top-notch people. So I’m really happy to congratulate our Medical Director Dr. Charles A. “Chip” Finch Jr., D.O. for his recent appointment to the Des Moines University Board of Trustees. As Medical Director, Dr. Finch provides medical oversight to all patients treated and transported by MedFlight911.
In addition to serving as our Medical Director, Dr. Finch is a partner and staff physician in the department of emergency medicine at Scottsdale Emergency Associates, and in pediatric emergency medicine at Maricopa Medical Center. He has received a variety of accolades, including being named the 2011 Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association Physician of the Year and 2011 DMU College of Osteopathic Medicine Alumnus of the Year.
Dr. Finch also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association and the Board of Directors for the American Lung Association of Arizona. He holds faculty and committee positions at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he is chair of the integrative medicine department; A.T. Still University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona; Midwestern University College of Osteopathic Medicine; and DMU, where he is an adjunct clinical assistant professor.
Dr. Finch also serves on the board of directors of Stepping Stones of Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing care and education to grieving children, families, adults and communities. He is the founder and camp director of Camp Paz, a Stepping Stones program in which grieving adults and children come together to heal in a safe environment (an incredible program that MedFlight911 is proud to support).
We’ve said it many times before, but we understand how stressful and scary it can be for the patient and his or her loved ones when they’re in a situation to need an air ambulance or air medical escort. It’s our job to take the fear and uncertainty out of the transport process, making the entire experience as seamless and stress-free as possible. To make that happen we rely on the best doctors, paramedics, nurses, and support staff, all of whom are passionate about patient care. People like Dr. Finch.
