NAAMTA’s Accreditation program is built on providing standards that focus on quality patient care and transport safety. Using a comprehensive audit of administrative documentation, medical practices, and facilities, NAAMTA is awarding Berry Aviation, Inc. medical transport accreditation for their fixed wing program.
Berry Aviation demonstrates compliance to each of the defined standards, excels in identifying best practice procedures, and instills these values in each employee. NAAMTA verified compliance through employee interviews, process reviews, and on-site evaluations, all of which were conducted using ISO 9001:2008 auditing guidelines.
In addition to the accreditation award, Berry Aviation joins the NAAMTA Alliance. This alliance unifies accredited organizations in the promotion of continuous improvement in safety and patient care. Continuous improvement is the result of shared education, experience and quality management principles by alliance members.
In speaking of the accreditation process, Stan Finch, Executive VP at Berry Aviation said, “I thought that thorough evaluation of our policies and procedures in advance of the site visits was a well-designed approach to accreditation.”
Lisa Gee, a member of the NAAMTA auditing team, said, “We appreciate the opportunity to review the medical transport services Berry Aviation provides through their Department of Defense contract in West Africa. We’re impressed by what we found. Berry Aviation delivers best practice medical care withskill and expertise, in a difficult and sometimes hostile environment. The collective commitment to safety and excellence is evident, and is a reflection of the commitment of each member of the Berry Aviation team.”
Berry Aviation has achieved a solid reputation for excellence, a status now augmented by an internationally recognized medical transport accreditation. NAAMTA salutes Berry Aviation for their
proactive approach in achieving accreditation and looks forward to the contributions they will share with the NAAMTA Alliance.
