Hall CCT achieves second reaccreditation
April 27, 2019
The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) has announced that Hall Critical Care Transport has successfully completed its second re-accreditation for its air ambulance and ground medical transportation programs.
CAMTS is a peer review organization dedicated to improving patient care and transport safety by providing a dynamic accreditation process through the development of standards, education and services that support their vision. The recognition demonstrates substantial compliance in the areas of ethical business practices; being patient and safety focused; continuous quality improvement; an honest self-assessment and transparency in the accreditation process.
The announcement was made after the successful completion of a rigorous three-part review process including a self-inspection, review of documentation by the CAMTS inspection team and site surveyors who visited Hall CCT where they interviewed key personnel and staff and inspected MEDEVAC 1 and ground unit 460 to ensure the equipment and supplies carried on-board meets or exceeds accreditation standards.
Achieving its second re-accreditation by CAMTS validates the high-quality interfacility transport solutions delivered by Hall CCT, its medical providers and support staff.
"Congratulations to our paramedics, RNs and EMTs; as well as, the pilots and mechanics who ensure the safe operations of MEDEVAC 1 through our alliance with Air Methods, who are committed to this program," said Lavonne C. Hall, president and CEO of Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. "Your accomplishment reinforces the ideals introduced by my late husband and founder of care, compassion and community."
Hall CCT first achieved accreditation in April 2013, when it became the eighth air medical transportation provider and first ground CCT provider in California to be recognized by CAMTS. As of April 13, 158 accredited services are operating in the United States.
"I am proud of the team for their dedication to quality patient care and safety over the last three years," said Chris Leone, program manager of Hall CCT. "This reaccreditation process proves once again that the staff of Hall Critical Care Transport continue to strive to achieve the highest standards in the industry. Congratulations to each and every one of them for their ongoing commitment."
Centrally located in California with its base of operations in Bakersfield, Hall CCT offers ground and air interfacility transport solutions providing a continuum of care in sync with our healthcare partners.
MEDEVAC 1 is owned and operated by Air Methods Corporation.
