MedAire opens new office


Global medical assistance provider MedAire has opened a new office in Ft. Lauderdale to support yacht crew in Portside Yachting Center at the southwest foot of the 17th Street Causeway bridge.

“The personal touch is a hallmark of our service to clients,” said Steven Bates, General Manager of Luxury Yachts for MedAire. “Therefore, it was very important to us to be in a central location so we can visit our clients – whether they are docked here year round or continuing on to the Caribbean.”

The office can provide recommendations on medical kits based on itinerary and client characteristics, as well as to review the safety services and medical training available to crew.
