As part of its continuing growth strategy, AirMed International has acquired San Antonio-based Air Medical, the largest fixed wing air medical transport company in Texas.

Air Medical's fleet of three jets and two King Air turboprops, equipped for critical care transports, is located at San Antonio International Airport. Those aircraft will join AirMed's fleet, including Beechjet, Cessna Citation, Hawker and Learjet aircraft along with more than 20 King Airs, located at nearly 30 bases.

"Strategically, this acquisition will allow AirMed International to serve growing requirements for critical care transport as we meet the needs of healthcare in the Texas region and enhance support for area military medical transports," said AirMed President Denise Treadwell. "The compassionate, dedicated and experienced Air Medical team that Chairman Joe McCart has built is quite compatible with our professional medical and flight teams."

Air Medical's McCart said, "Denise Treadwell's AirMed International team has integrity, financial strength and commitment to patient care, consequently this sale will benefit our customers and our employees very well into the future." Air Medical has performed emergency and pre- cheduled medical transports for 15 years. Like AirMed, it also conducts international transports and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS).
