Air Medical Group Holdings, Inc.’s acquisition of the assets of Sierra Lifeflight


Jones Day advised Air Medical Group Holdings, Inc. in the acquisition by subsidiary REACH Medical Holdings, LLC, of the assets of Sierra Lifeflight, the air medical transport company located in Bishop, CA.

Under new ownership, the company will continue operating from their base at the Eastern Sierra Regional Airport.

For the past 24 years, Sierra Lifeflight was a family-owned air ambulance operation with a long history of excellent service transporting patients to needed care. In remote areas like Inyo and Mono counties, having an air ambulance service is critical. Hospitals often need their patients transferred to higher levels of care than can be provided locally, and the time it takes to go by ground ambulance is not an option for some patients. Sierra Lifeflight will continue providing air medical transports for the region. Medical transports are flown by a pilot with thousands of hours of flight experience on board a medically equipped airplane. The medical crew consists of highly skilled and licensed flight nurses and paramedics who administer critical care throughout the transport.

Sierra Lifeflight joins REACH Air Medical Services, Cal-Ore Life Flight, and CALSTAR Air Medical Services owned by REACH Medical Holdings. Together, they form part of the largest air medical transport organization in the western United States.

Jones Day has advised Air Medical Group Holdings, Inc. on the deal with a team led by partner Joseph Hatina.
