Fr. Pavone Salutes Kalitta MedFlight, “Heroes” in the Flight of Baby Joseph to St. Louis

 

Priests for Life

March 16, 2011

   
 

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised Kalitta MedFlight of Ypsilanti, Michigan, for its key role in flying Baby Joseph Maraachli from a Toronto hospital to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis.


 


“The flight of Baby Joseph to St. Louis for medical treatment was carried out by Kalitta MedFlight,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Kalitta MedFlight came to us when they heard about Baby Joseph, and offered to help. We worked with them on the details, and were ready to pay for all the expenses. Then, on top of their courteous and professional service, they also told us that they would not charge for their services, which included not only a fully equipped Learjet, but also a Critical Care Pediatric Transport Team to ensure Baby Joseph’s safe transfer.”


 


“There are many people to thank in this collaborative effort, but Kalitta MedFlight stepped up early on with its generous offer of highest quality transport care,” added Fr. Pavone.  “The people at Kalitta MedFlight are heroes in this story.”


 


Baby Joseph Maraachli, the one-year-old was refused a tracheotomy by a hospital near his Canadian home. He was flown in a specially equipped plane Sunday night to St. Louis where doctors will assess and treat him.
