An international medical transfer company which transports ill
and injured patients via medically-configured jets, Angel MedFlight
was founded in 2007 by Jeremy Freer, a then 25-year-old flight
paramedic with a dream of helping patients and their families.
“As a flight paramedic, I saw that the air medical
transport system was inefficient and patients were not receiving
the level of care and safety they needed,” says Freer.
“I made the decision to change that and I’ve never
looked back. From the very beginning, we have focused on our
patients’ best interests, and that required a complete
overhaul of the medical transport system. Today, we have we have
nurses and case managers planning bedside-to-bedside transfers and
an in-house legal team dedicated to assisting with insurance. We
are committed to innovation in the name of patient care and safety,
and it is an honor to be recognized for that.”
Angel MedFlight was announced as winner during a November 8
luncheon at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale.
Attended by hundreds of business and community leaders, the
ceremony highlighted the achievements of 10 Arizona businesses
whose founders have shown remarkable vision and tenacity in the
realization of their ideas.
