MedEvac Transport of the Year

Now Accepting Nominations! 

Nominations are due by AUGUST 15, 2022.

The MedEvac Foundation is proud to announce the 2022 MedEvac Transport of the Year Award!

We are currently seeking nominations and will present the first Medevac Transport of the Year Award during the 2022 ELEVATE Medical Transport conference in Tampa, Florida - Oct 24-26th.


The MedEvac Transport of the Year Award, sponsored by the Kevin and Sandra Hutton Foundation, is presented in recognition of the multidisciplinary team effort needed, from point of injury to discharge, to achieve the best possible outcome for the most critically ill and injured patients.

Since 2015, the MedEvac Foundation has presented its annual Patient of the Year Award to celebrate an emergency medical transport patient whose survival can be attributed to air medical intervention, and to recognize the team/program that performed the medical transport.


After listening to feedback from the community, the MedEvac Foundation and our longtime award sponsor, the Kevin and Sandra Hutton Foundation, have decided to revise and refresh this annual award to more accurately recognize and highlight the robust and multidisciplinary team effort needed for the best possible patient outcome.


Tell us about a patient transport that stands out in your mind because of efforts across the continuum of care, from point of injury to discharge. Communications specialists, first responders, referring hospital, flight and ground teams, receiving hospitals and trauma/surgical teams – so many individuals play a vital role and we want to acknowledge and celebrate these lifesaving efforts across the board.

The patient and members of the transport team must be available to accept the award in person at the ELEVATE Transport Medicine conference in Tampa, Florida - Oct 24-26, 2022.  Additionally,  the patient must be willing to tell their story publicly and authorize the use of their protected health information relevant to their transport and recovery.


The patient and three (3) patient caregivers will receive:

  • Complimentary ELEVATE full registration
  • One (1) free night of hotel accommodations in Tampa
