The Health Quality Council of Alberta has released findings and recommendations from a review of the transport and care provided to critically-ill and time-sensitive medevac patients since the closure of the City Centre Airport in March of 2013. Health Quality Council Chief Executive Officer Andrew Neuner says Alberta Health Services jumped on recommendations from their 2011 review into medevac services.
“What we’re doing is encouraging our Alberta Health Services to do is keep up the good work,” says Neuner. “They were able to implement 15 of the 18 recommendations we recommended previously and they’re working on the remaining three and this just takes it a little bit further to make sure of continuous review and improvement.”
Neuner says the results of the review they released today were a bit of a surprise to the Council, albeit a very pleasant one.
