Established since 1976, Parkview is 100% Canadian owned and operated. The company provides a full range of expert medical services in both Commercial Air Ambulance Medical transports and Ground support.
Our Management team boasts more than 50 years combined experience in developing and implementing programs. We work directly with our clients in order to meet their individual needs.
Parkview’s head office and operations are located in the Greater Toronto area. The Toronto airport positions us to cover North America and Europe efficiently while offering direct cost effective routing to all other continents. Parkview also maintains a satellite office out of Tampa, Florida.
Our expertise in Air Medical repatriations is unsurpassed.
Commercial Airline Repatriation is the strength of our business. We have developed and implemented programs designed specifically for the patient who can fly via commercial airline. Dedicating resources to our core competency makes our expertise unsurpassed in the industry.
With the medical staff pool that Parkview has, the company is able to meet last minute requests and have an escort airborne in the matter of hours. The multicultural landscape of our home office gives us access for visa procurement since Toronto has several Visa and Consulate offices. This allows us the ability to obtain a visa either same or next day.
Parkview AirMedical provides professional medical escorts consisting of fully certified ACLS trained Paramedics, Registered Nurses & Physicians.
These escorts accompany your patient, family member and friends on major commercial airlines. These transports can also be done via train and cruise ships for those who cannot fly. We will assist in making sure that the journey is safe and stress free. Our company will coordinate transportation needs to and from the airport along with wheelchair, seat to seat transfers and baggage assistance. We will ensure a smooth bedside to bedside transition.
Detailed medical directives are on hand for any in flight medical emergency and our Medical Directors are available for teleconference medical support 24 hours a day if required. In order to ensure safe travel, Parkview will also obtain medical clearances on all cases and deal with security issues to streamline your travel experience.
Parkview AirMedical can access:
We can also provide airline ticketing for clients in which their cases do not require medical escorts.
This level of service is limited to a select number of commercial airlines along with suitable aircraft that can support a stretcher.
Parkview will obtain detailed medical report from the health care providers of the patient. If Commercial Stretcher Service is the chosen method of transportation, then we will secure the stretcher, obtain clearances and make all necessary provisions for the transport along with associated costs. (ie: Ambulances to and from the airport and plane to plane)
Most airlines require a minimum of 72 hrs notice. In most cases, the airline confirms first available date due to space and aircraft configurations.
Our company has developed unique relationships with the Airline medical teams which enable us to obtain rapid medical clearances. We obtain all required information and documentation from the sending and receiving facilities that allows us an easy transition with the airlines for medical clearances.
Parkview will also position supplemental oxygen with the airlines. This industry requires advance notice to provide oxygen service therefore our company owns their Oxygen concentrators which are FAA approved. Owning our equipment avoids unnecessary delays to repatriate patients that are ready to be discharged. Either in the air or on the ground we will have you covered.
Parkview has built a unique and vast database of ground ambulance, limousine and taxi providers, including wheelchair accessible vehicles that are used in all our repatriation. We analyze the most cost effective and safest means of transport. Parkview will organize these transfers on individual case bases.
