Purpose

Our Vision: To ensure that no one is ever denied medical care because they don't have transportation.

MERCY MEDICAL ANGELS ("MMA") is dedicated to serving people in situations of compelling human need through the provision of charitable air transportation. MMA's mission is to facilitate a charitable means of long distance medical air transport for all medically indigent, low-income and financially vulnerable patients in our society thereby ensuring equal access to distant specialized medical treatment or to appropriate facilities and settings for continuing care. National Patient Air Transport Helpline - NPATH is the nation's only single source of referral information on the full spectrum of charitable long-distance air medical transport options. MMA offers this 24-hour nationwide hotline as a service in support of the National Charitable Air Transportation System. Angel Flight Program - MMA operates a free, long-distance, ambulatory outpatient transport service for individuals in medical and financial crisis. Angel Flight volunteer pilots link with other pilots nationally -- together flying thousands of needy patients each year. Airline Charitable Ticket Program Development - MMA encourages and assists commercial airlines in the development of charitable ticket programs nationally. Special-Lift Programs -MMA manages and coordinates large-scale charitable air medical transportation programs for individuals, often children, who need access to medical research centers and disease-specific treatment programs. General Aviation Charitable Program Development - MMA provides administrative and program management services for Air Care Alliance, the nationwide league of volunteer pilot organizations flying for public benefit.
