Hall CCT CAMTS Reaccreditation
Hall Critical Care Transport (Hall CCT) of Bakersfield has received reaccreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS), for its rotary-wing and ground critical care transport services. The recognition demonstrates substantial compliance in the areas of safety standards, medical direction, crew education and quality improvement.
The announcement was made after the successful completion of a rigorous three-part review process including a self-inspection, review by the CAMTS inspection team of documentation supporting the accreditation, and an onsite inspection, which included peer review from currently accredited providers. Key personnel spent the better part of a year preparing for accreditation while CAMTS staff spent over 150 hours reviewing the program and completing the site visit, followed by a 20-hour final review and decision by the board of directors.
“Achieving reaccreditation by this organization serves as a testament to the rigorous aviation and medical standards exhibited by Hall CCT’s specialized medical teams and Air Methods, our aircraft operations partner,” said Harvey L. Hall, founder, and president of parent company Hall Ambulance Service, Inc.
Hall CCT first achieved accreditation in April 2013, when it became the eighth air medical transportation provider and first ground CCT provider in California to be recognized by CAMTS. There are 181 accredited services throughout North America.
Established in 1971, Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. provides 9-1-1 paramedic services to nearly 90% of Kern County, California. The Company expanded its specialized medical transportation services to include air ambulance in December 2001, with the creation of Hall Air Ambulance. In December 2009, the service grew to include both ground and air critical care transport services operating as Hall Critical Care Transport.
