Emedical Global Jamaica Ltd.(EMED), the Jamaica-based ground & air ambulance service, announced on May 28, 2015 that it had entered into an agreement with the Port Authority of Jamaica, allowing it to provide emergency ground and air ambulance evacuation services to cruise ship passengers travelling to Jamaica. The company has positioned a fully equipped fixed-wing air ambulance aircraft at Tinson Pen Aerodome, Kingston.
EMED said it has also developed new technologies that make it easier for doctors, flight nurses and paramedics to have up-to-date health information that is accessible in a moment’s notice. In support of the company’s work with the Port Authority, EMED has developed a mobile application for Android, Apple and Blackberry devices that allows tourists to access its ground and air ambulance services and approved network of physicians and hospitals.
Duane Boise, EMED’s CEO, commented: “EMED offers this critical service in support of Jamaica’s mature tourist industry, which allows tourists the peace of mind that in the event of a medical emergency, they have a trusted advocate while far from home.
