HCA Holdings, a health care services company, has selected AirMed International to provide global air medical transport services for the healthcare system's more than 300,000 employees and dependents covered by HCA health insurance.

HCA Healthcare is comprised of locally managed facilities that include more than 250 hospitals and freestanding surgery centers located in 20 US states and in the UK.

When HCA's insured workforce and dependents are hospitalized anywhere in the world, AirMed International will provide bedside to bedside medical transportation back to an HCA facility for continued hospital care.

"AirMed International is grateful that HCA, one of the world's most impressive medical institutions, has entrusted our company with the transportation and health care of its insured employees and their families," said AirMed president Denise Treadwell. "It is also a further demonstration of HCA's confidence in the professionalism of our experienced medical and flight personnel."
