South Haven, MI


I became very weak while on vacation in Cancun. I went to the hospital where they checked my blood and discovered my hemoglobin levels were only 1/3 of normal. I called my hemotologist in Kalamazoo, MI who said I needed to get a transfusion to stabilize my condition and then get home.

When we called SkyMed, Jim was very helpful and professional. Everything about my air evacuation from Cancun to Michigan was prompt and friendly, and I was very pleased.

We have recommended SkyMed to all of our friends who travel. If it weren’t for SkyMed, I wo[...more]

My wife and I were on board the Carnival Glory Cruise Ship near Cozumel, Mexico, when around 2:00 a.m. I had a heart attack. My wife called 911 on the ship and they had to revive me and put me on oxygen. They kept me stable and by 9:00 a.m. I was taken by ambulance to the Cozumel Medical Center.

When we got there the Medical Center wanted $25,000 up front; my wife gave them $5,000 using our credit card but the clinic said that was not enough. My wife then phoned my daughter and son-in-law and they came up with $15,000; the clinic settled for $20,000.

They admitted me and ran several tests and the cardiovascular doctor told me I had severe heart damage and may have had a heart attack or two and would run more tests. He also said I had fluid on my lungs and an abnormal heart beat, high blood pre[...more]

Del & Luann Larson

Moorehead, MN


In March of 2014 my wife and I were on our way back to Minnesota from our winter vacation in Tucson and stopped in Mesa due to an electrical problem. The next evening my wife Luann wasn’t feeling well and went to bed early, only to be awakened around midnight with chest pains. Luann has Muscular Dystrophy and had previously had a stroke in January, so I called 911 and they transported her to Banner Heart Hospital in Mesa. The ER monitor showed no signs of a heart attack so they admitted her and began looking for blood clots. The next morning she was in even more pain from a blood clot found[...more]
