“Many of our clients are looking for a short term medical staffing solution,” said Steven Bates, General Manager of Yachting for MedAire.   “As clients are travelling to increasingly remote locations, may be engaging in high adrenaline sports and riskier activities, or may have a guest that needs extra medical care, there is now the option to add a doctor or paramedic on board for a period of time.” 

Medical personnel remain under MedAire employment and have up to date insurance, offering convenience to clients who may not want or need to recruit and hire a full time nurse or doctor.  MedAire, through parent company International SOS, has a strong candidate pool of medical professionals familiar with working in remote environments and can make a placement quickly based on the client specifications. 

“We are uniquely positioned with the right expertise and resources to provide this service as part of best in class safety solution for yachting clients,” continued Steven Bates.  

MedAire has been providing remote medical assistance for over 30 years, and works closely with yachting clients to provide best-in-class safety solutions including MedLink remote assistance, medical kits, crew training and medical room consultancy.
