DENVER, Feb. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Air Methods Corporation (Nasdaq:AIRM), the global leader in air medical transportation, announced today it has entered into agreements with HCA MidAmerica and North Florida Divisions. Air Methods will provide medical communication services through its DirectCall Transfer Center for the MidAmerica Division, and has established a preferred provider agreement with the North Florida Division for air medical transport services.

As part of the MidAmerica Division agreement, Air Methods' DirectCall Transfer Center will assist with inter-facility patient transports between the MidAmerica Division's 18-affiliated hospitals and other surrounding medical centers.
