Robert and Patricia Young had just arrived for their vacation at Simpson Bay Resort in St. Maarten. They were looking forward to a great time as all their children and grandchildren were with them. On the first night after arriving, Patricia walked into the bathroom and slipped on a rug on a marble floor. She fell and it was obvious that she had broken something. Robert called 911. Patricia was taken to the St. Maarten Medical Center where it was determined she had a broken hip and fractured elbow. Robert called SkyMed. SkyMed arranged for an air flight home to the States with two escort nurses; and covered expenses to fly them from St. Maarten to Phoenix, Arizona. SkyMed also arranged an ambulance to transport Patricia to Honor Health in Deer Valley, AZ when they arrived in Phoenix.
How did you find out about SkyMed and why did you choose SkyMed? “We have been traveling to St. Maarten for many years,” says Robert Young. “I had signed up for SkyMed’s short term plan shortly before our last trip. And none too soon, as we needed SkyMed’s help in the next weeks’ time. SkyMed saved me a large portion of our retirement investment and I cannot thank them enough.”
What would you tell your friends about your experience with SkyMed? “Because of our experience, I tell my friends, SkyMed is a life saver. SkyMed handled everything so I didn’t have to worry about anything, and I could focus on helping my wife. I am the first to say, ‘Sign up with SkyMed’.”
Do you have any tips to share on ‘how to’ survive a life challenge? “Be calm and be understanding. Doing these two things helps take care of everything.”
