About Our Medical Transportation Services
JeffSTAT is the Philadelphia region's most comprehensive provider of medical transportation, supplying everything from basic life support, advanced life support and critical care ambulance services to air medical transport via a helicopter.
We transport patients to any receiving hospital in southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. We have been operating for nearly two decades and transport more than 15,000 patients a year. JeffSTAT has dedicated critical care transport nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We operate a fleet of 20 vehicles, including helicopters, ambulances and paratransit vans (aviation services provided by Air Methods).
Licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, JeffSTAT personnel provide care in accordance with evidence-based treatment protocols developed with Jefferson neurologists, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, trauma surgeons and other physician specialists. We receive medical direction from the attending physicians in Jefferson's Department of Emergency Medicine.
JeffSTAT is the only air and ground transport program in the Philadelphia region that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) — an organization that assesses quality and safety in the medical transportation industry.
In fact, JeffSTAT is the only medical transportation service in the region equipped with a fiber-optic balloon pump for cardiac patients, and we are the only service in the region to carry fetal monitors on the ambulances and helicopters. We also have an Isolette® configured for nitric oxide delivery during transport. Other state-of-the-art equipment includes ventilators, cardiac monitors and invasive monitoring technology so the team can monitor arterial lines, pulmonary artery catheters and intracranial pressures during transport.
