Region’s First Critical Life Support Helicopter

We are the first health system-affiliated air transport program in Greater Cincinnati to provide emergency transport of critically ill adult patients who are receiving ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) treatment.

When UC Health Can Help

Air Care & Mobile Care has provided the Greater Cincinnati area with specialized transport medicine services for patients in our community for more than 35 years. We are the first and only comprehensive adult ECMO ground and air transport service in the region. Our critical care life support helicopter is able to transport patients within a 200-mile radius from University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Our Unique Approach To Patient Care
