Two-Time Olympian and Patient Champion Announces Collaboration with Air Medical Transport Provider Angel MedFlight



SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Six-time Olympic gold medalist, Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is announcing her 2018 collaboration with Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance. As a patient advocate for spinal cord injuries (SCI), Van Dyken-Rouen is teaming up with the medical transport provider to share her positive message with healthcare providers, critical care patients, and their families. Since her spinal cord injury in 2014, Van Dyken-Rouen has emerged as a powerful champion for the patient community she calls "differently-abled".

Six-time Olympic gold medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is collaborating with the Angel MedFlight team on patient advocacy initiatives.

"I really believe my accident happened so that I can be an example of never giving up and always moving straight ahead," said Amy Van Dyken-Rouen. "I'm proud to help that message reach even further with Angel MedFlight because they are so special in what they do and how they do it. They didn't care that I was a six-time Olympic gold medalist, or that my husband had won two Super Bowl rings. Whoever you are, they're going to do whatever is right for you."

Angel MedFlight partners with hospitals and healthcare facilities to support critical care patients in reaching the life-changing care they need. The company transported Van Dyken-Rouen to Craig Hospital for her own rehabilitation in 2014, and is ready to support her ongoing efforts in patient advocacy.

"We understand the value of perseverance and patient advocacy, and we couldn't find a champion who embodies these qualities more than Amy Van Dyken-Rouen," said Andrew Bess, Angel MedFlight's Chief Operating Officer. "It's an honor for the Angel MedFlight team to collaborate with Amy to inspire healthcare professionals, patients, and their families and to share why every moment counts."

Angel MedFlight has made the two-time Olympian a centerpiece of their "Every Moment Counts" campaign. Videos released throughout the year will highlight some of Van Dyken-Rouen's most pivotal moments throughout her recovery and career.

Van Dyken-Rouen hopes these moments will bring visibility to patients learning to live with spinal cord injuries, and the challenges they face every day. "Together, we can bring more awareness to the differently-abled community and keeping the focus on empowerment," she said.

The company also plans to host Amy Van Dyken-Rouen as a speaker at the annual American Case Management Association conference in Houston, where she will continue sharing the importance of patient advocacy and getting patients to their next level of care across the country and world.
