We Have Lots to Be Thankful for at MedFlight911 Air Ambulance
One of our family traditions every Thanksgiving is to go around the table before we eat and each person says one thing they’re thankful for. It’s a great opportunity to remind ourselves of how blessed we truly are. Even though Thanksgiving has passed, it feels appropriate to think about all that we’re thankful for as the MedFlight911 “family.” This year, we're giving thanks for:
- The truly amazing team of professionals we have working with us – from the people in our office arranging transports and communicating with doctors and families, to the medical crews who take such good care of our patients, to the flight crews who get our patients to their destinations safely. We wouldn't be able to help our patients without all the hard work that every one of these individuals puts in every single day. You're the best!
- Our patients and their families, who have turned to us to help them get to where they need to be in a time of need. No one is never happy to need an advanced air ambulance or commercial medical escort, and we know that most people who contact us looking for information on a transport would rather not be making that call. We're thankful and honored that our patients and their families trust us during what is often a stressful time, and we do everything in our power to ensure that their trust is well-earned.
- The many people we've met over the past year who have touched our hearts and our lives. We've participated in some incredible transports in the last 12 months (including transporting a young burn victim to the U.S. from the Ukraine and helping a 98-year-old woman travel half-way across the country to see her seriously ill daughter). It's a blessing to be able to help each of the many people we've worked with over the year.
- Another year with an impeccable record of safe, efficient transports. Air ambulance travel (like all air travel) isn't without risks, but at MedFlight911, we always put the safety of our passengers and crew first. When patients come to us, we're solely responsible for their care, and that's a responsibility that we take very seriously – we don't intend to let anyone down. Once again, we're pleased that we've been able to fulfill our promise of delivering the safest possible air medical transport to those we serve.
If you didn’t do it on Thanksgiving, I hope you're able to take a few moments to reflect on the things that you're thankful for, whether it's good health, a loving family, a warm home, or whatever else gives you peace or joy.
