guardian flight is new name for amrg

February 20, 2018

Guardian Flight LLC, a leading air medical transport company, is the new rebranded name of the former Air Medical Resource Group (AMRG), headquartered in South Jordan, Utah, near Salt Lake City.

Guardian Flight, recently acquired by Air Medical Group Holdings Inc. (AMGH), operates a fleet of approximately 100 fixed and rotor wing aircraft dedicated to air medical flights in the Upper Midwest, Mountain West, Southwest, Alaska and Hawaii. With more than 800 professional staff, including clinical providers, pilots, mechanics, trained communicators and support staff, Guardian Flight’s aircraft and associated medical crews are at 55 bases in 13 states that serve a total of 15 states.

“The change to Guardian Flight reflects the new legal structure of all of our entities and eliminates potential confusion between AMRG and AMGH,” said Guardian Flight President Fred Buttrell, who also serves as CEO of AMGH. “Importantly, the rebranding of our Guardian Flight umbrella company provides an opportunity to build a reputation for providing the finest possible servant care of the patients we transport,” he added.

All of the Guardian Flight companies are active in AirMedCare Network, the largest alliance of affiliated air ambulance providers. An AirMedCare Network membership automatically enrolls participants in all participating providers’ membership programs providing necessary transport at a nominal membership fee. It has three million members in 38 states.
