The Harrison Story

It Started as a Normal Day

Jim and his family attended a local festival when his daughter, Sara, suddenly began experiencing horrible abdominal and back pain after a fall from earlier in the day. His wife Heather called 911 and Sara was transported to a local hospital when it was decided that she needed to be flown to another hospital. Upon arrival, Sara underwent multiple procedures and her condition was stabilized. After further testing, it was discovered that Sara needed additional specialized treatment at another hospital, requiring transport on a non-emergent basis.

WE PREPARE YOUR CLIENTS FOR THE UNEXPECTED

With MASA, your clients will be covered everywhere within the United States and Canada, no matter which provider picks them up.
