LAS VEGAS – Miracle Flights, the nation’s foremost medical flight charity, is honored to be awarded a $25,000 donation from TeamHealth, the country’s leading provider of outsourced hospital-based clinical and administrative services.
Displays at TeamHealth’s booth at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) conference held Oct. 16-19 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, acquainted visitors with the work of five charity finalists. Attendees were encouraged to vote for their favorite, ultimately selecting Miracle Flights to receive the donation.
