Robb Alpaugh

Welcome to Mercy Medical Angels where removing the barrier to medical care is our mission. We provide transportation on the ground and in the air to clinical care for those in need. Since 1972 Mercy Medical Angels has led the nation with charitable transportation to medical care. Today more than 17,000 free trips to medical care are provided each year, ensuring that no one in need is denied medical care because they don’t have transportation. I invite you to join our mission!
