BROOKSVILLE — Global Jetcare, the acclaimed premium air ambulance service with its home base in Hernando County was recently recognized with two awards, Best International Air Ambulance - USA and the 2019 Top Florida Companies to Watch.
Global Jetcare flies medically fragile patients where requested, for surgery or treatment, or home to finish out their final days as requested by their families. They have scheduled as many as three trips a day, depending on need. And they are always on high alert if a flight is needed.
Using a fleet of five planes, four of which can fly anywhere in the world, Global Jetcare is often in flight. And it takes precision and skill to coordinate trips, allowing for fuel stops and keeping pilots rested.
Global Jetcare was named Best International Air Ambulance – USA as part of the 2019 International Life Science Awards from the magazine Global Health & Pharma. According to GHP, “The firm’s flight coordinators are experts in what is required to move patients from one country to another.”
Global Jetcare was chosen from 500 growing second-stage companies throughout Florida” by the Companies to Watch program of the Florida Economic Gardening Institute, known as GrowFL . The companies chosen generated a combined $1 billion in revenue and added more than 900 jobs between 2015 and 2018.
“These stand out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow,” said Tom O’Neal, GrowFL executive director. “They also have critical intellectual property or a niche position that gives them a competitive edge in their markets.”
Bart Gray, president of Global Jetcare, said, GJC has committed to making a difference in the air ambulance industry at the regional, and international level with five long-range medical Lear Jets.
“We have a reputation as one of the leading international air ambulance transport specialists,” Gray said. “Our Mission is to provide the highest quality medical care, safety, and a cost-effective Aero Medical Transport.”
Christina Gray, vice president of Global Jetcare, and Bart’s mother, added, “This current economy has enabled us to attract and assemble an exceptionally qualified team and offer them the best salaries and benefits, as well as provide us with the resources to enlarge our fleet.”
Lifesaving, meaningful medical transports are coordinated almost daily for patients of all kinds of nationalities, injuries or medically fragile conditions. And they begin and end with a Global Jetcare aircraft out of the Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport.
