For 50 years, Methodist Healthcare has been the preferred provider of healthcare in San Antonio and throughout Central/South Texas. Methodist Healthcare includes nine acute care hospitals and is one of the largest health care providers in the nation. In 2009, REACH partnered with Methodist Healthcare to open Methodist AirCare 1, in San Antonio. This operation provides emergency air ambulance service to residents located throughout Bexar county and most of South Texas. Also essential to this relationship is the transporting of the highly skilled Specialty Transport Team for Critically ill pediatric and neonatal patients.
In 2011, REACH and Methodist Healthcare announced the expansion of their partnership to include a second base in Pearsall, Texas, called Methodist AirCare 2. In 2013, Methodist and REACH opened AirCare 4 in Seguin, Texas. This base is an integrated partnership between Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, Methodist Healthcare, REACH Air Medical Services and AirEvac Lifeteam. The base is stationed at Guadalupe Regional Medical Center and serve the residents of Guadalupe, Gonzales, Dewitt, Karnes and Wilson counties.
Methodist Healthcare earns its excellent reputation in service to several hundred thousand patients each year. They offer a quality selection of doctors, health care professionals, equipment, tertiary and quaternary facilities, and health services – from wellness events and preventive medicine to every service line, including solid and stem cell transplant programs. More than 2,600 physicians in all specialty areas treat patients at these facilities.
As a unique collaboration, REACH is proud to wear the Methodist logo and humbled to be their partner.
