New Hanover Regional Medical Center AirLink/VitaLink has received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) for its compliance with national standards of excellence.  NHRMC AirLink/VitaLink is one of 162 services nationwide to receive CAMTS accreditation. 

“Achievement of this prestigious recognition is well-earned by every member of our team,” said John Popella, Director of NHRMC Critical Care Transport. “It is a testament to our commitment to a culture of safety, uncompromising quality, and the highest standards of patient care.”

VitaLink units are specially equipped to care for patients with complicated medical histories who need ongoing medical care when being transported. In a critical situation, New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s AirLink is available to deliver specialized air transportation.

CAMTS is a group of non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the quality and safety of medical transport services, with 21 current member organizations.  The commission offers a program of voluntary evaluation of compliance with accreditation standards demonstrating the ability to deliver service of a specific quality.  The commission believes that the two highest priorities of an air medical or ground inter-facility transport service are patient care and safety of the transport environment.
