Mercy Medical Angels helps saves lives with medical transportation for those in need. For many patients, the journey back to a health is a long process. While healthcare is available, the cost of travel to distant medical facilities creates a financial burden preventing many patients from accessing the vital care they need.

Mercy Medical Angels removes the barrier to medical care with transportation on the ground and in the air.

Mercy Medical Angels was founded in 1972 when four men in Washington, D.C. began offering free transportation in a small airplane to medical care for those in need.

Over the years, your donations have made it possible for Mercy Medical Angels to expand, meet new needs and offer different modes of transportation to where it is now the nation's largest provider of charitable transportation for those in need.

Program accomplishments

Since 1972, we've provided more than 250,000 trips for patients who couldn't afford to travel to long-distance healthcare.


Help Patients Receive Critical Medical Care by providing free medical transportation to a specialist healthcare facility.
