WAUSAU — The National Accreditation Alliance of Medical Transport Applications has awarded Aspirus Medevac accreditation for its ground ambulance and rotor-wing medical transport program, Aspirus announced today.

NAAMTA Accreditation is founded on standards that identify best practice criteria in all aspects of medical transport, including business administration, personnel qualifications, training, communications and safety.

“Aspirus Medevac provides exceptional transport services in north central Wisconsin and Upper Michigan,” said Lisa Gee, a member of the NAAMTA auditing team, in an Aspirus news release. “Its willingness to provide 911 and ALS intercept services in rural areas demonstrates an exemplary commitment to meeting the medical transport needs of the communities it serves.”

Aspirus Medevac has been accredited since 2015.

“We’re proud to continue to be a NAAMTA Alliance member,” said Jason Keffeler, Aspirus system director of pre-hospital emergency services, in the news release. “The accreditation has validated our high standards, our commitment and our quality. We are exceptionally proud that we are the first program surveyed to have no criterion deficiencies.”
