- Medical Services
Wherever you are, whenever you call, Global Rescue has paramedics and physicians standing by to assist you. Through our staff physicians and our relationship with physicians at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Global Rescue can remotely apply the expertise of some of the nation's finest healthcare professionals.
If a member and/or the member's attending physician require the advice of a specialist, Global Rescue will facilitate timely consultations to provide our members with the answers they need. We are equipped to receive electronic transmission of CT, MRI and X-Ray scans and if necessary, can arrange to have the images physically collected virtually anywhere in the world and transported on a next-flight-out (NFO) basis to a location where they can be reviewed by the appropriate physician. Should a member be hospitalized, we will act collaboratively with the member's attending physician and arrange for transport or evacuation procedures if the member elects to be transported. The right medical expertise at the right time can result in dramatic improvements in patient outcomes. Only Global Rescue offers these resources to its members.
- Transport Services
When an evacuation or transfer is required via private aircraft, Global Rescue utilizes only state-of-the-art medically equipped aircraft and whenever possible, endeavors to use CAMTS (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems) certified service providers. If providers are not CAMTS certified, Global Rescue's operations team has conducted due diligence to ensure the aircraft and flight crews meet our exacting safety and quality standards. Our requirements are stringent - if it isn't good enough to transport our families, it isn't good enough for our members.
In certain instances, Global Rescue utilizes commercial aircraft to evacuate our members. Through our relationships with the major commercial airlines, Global Rescue is able to improve and extend its domestic and international services. Transport by commercial aircraft with a medical escort is often the best alternative for rapid departure and uninterrupted flights over long distances.
- Security Services
Global Rescue is committed to providing its members with access to the finest security services available. Through Global Rescue and our service providers' security personnel, members have the ability to get the answers and solutions they need to today's security issues. From basic advice, to threat assessments, to tactical security teams comprised of former U.S. Special Forces operators, Global Rescue provides our members with access to solutions for a wide range of threat environments. Telephonic advising services are included in the cost of membership. Additional services are available on a fee for service basis.
