HealthNet earns re-accreditation

After an in-depth review of policies, procedures and practices, HealthNet Aeromedical Services has been awarded re-accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) for its rotor wing helicopter and ground critical care transport services.

HealthNet also has been fully accredited for both ground advanced life support and basic life support at all of its eight bases. HealthNet is the only ground ambulance service provider in West Virginia to have received this national level ground service accreditation.

CAMTS is dedicated to improving the quality and safety of medical transport services through regular voluntary compliance evaluations focusing on patient care and safety of the transport environment. HealthNet's accreditation is valid through 2015. Less than 30 percent of flight programs in the United States have been recognized through this difficult process.

HealthNet's helicopter operation was first accredited in 1996 and has been continually re-accredited since that time. The recent survey was the first to integrate ground transport operations into the accreditation process.

Headquartered in Charleston, HealthNet operates eight helicopter bases located in Morgantown, Ripley, Hamlin, Beckley, Buckhannon and Martinsburg; Ports-mouth, Ohio; and Martin County, Ky.

Air service is supported by strategically placed ground transport assets.
