FARMINGTON — San Juan Regional Medical Center's AirCare was re-accredited for the next three years by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems, according to a press release from the hospital.

The hospital goes through the accreditation process voluntarily. Being accredited shows that AirCare meets national standards and provides safe, high-quality service for patients, according to the press release.

"The CAMTS accreditation process shows that we continuously raise the bar and the standards for patient care and safety and continue improving on everything we do," said Mike Berve, manager of AirCare.

AirCare includes a fixed-wing plane and a helicopter, which are available to provide emergency transport 24-hours a day. It has been accredited since 1995.
