Patricia DesLauriers, an American X-Pat living on the Island of Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos Islands, describes her SkyMed experience when she had taken a bad fall and shattered her knee cap. She states, “The small hospital on the island could not handle this emergency as I needed immediate surgery. The hospital staff stabilized me, and I called SkyMed as I planned to be transported back to the US for surgery. SkyMed would take me anywhere in the US that I wanted to go, and I chose to go to Tampa, Florida. Because my injury was not life-threatening, I did not need an air ambulance, but I needed medical assistance to fly back. SkyMed took care of the flight arrangements and sent a trained nurse to the islands to accompany me to the hospital in Tampa. SkyMed took care of getting me safe and sound to the hospital and the nurse stayed with me until I was checked in. None of this cost me anything since I was a SkyMed Member. SkyMed is worth more than money. If you read the fine print, SkyMed will take you to ‘where’ you want to go. I highly recommend SkyMed above all other companies! THANK YOU, SkyMed!”

How did you find out about SkyMed and why did you choose SkyMed? “I found SkyMed from doing a lot of research on different companies. SkyMed is the only company that will guarantee to take you home to the mainland US.”


What would you tell your friends about your experience with SkyMed? “I tell all my friends that SkyMed is the only company to use. I tell them they need to read the fine print during their research and they will discover that SkyMed is always the best choice.”


Do you have any tips to share on ‘how to’ survive a life challenge? Stay strong, stay positive and keep moving forward. Be a warrior.”
