MEDICAL CARE AND REPATRIATION OF SICK OR INJURED PERSONNEL
This is a field in which we have been active and have specialized in over the last 30 years. Accidents and illness of crew members or non-crew members on board vessels often require an emergency response from our side to locally monitor the hospitalization and repatriation of the individual to his home country.
Our network throughout France and Africa allows us to attend and provide appropriate assistance to hospitalize the injured/sick person in the best and most appropriate medical facility.
We have developed a close partnership with a competent emergency medical team, which is able to obtain directly necessary information regarding the medical status of the injured person from the doctor in charge locally and to recommend best tailor-made options for the repatriation, either by regular commercial flights or by medicalized plane.
We have recently organized the urgent repatriation of an injured crewmember from Tema to his home country in Eastern Europe, with a prior stop at Marseille, where the crewmember was hospitalized, underwent surgery, and was finally stabilized for several weeks before final repatriation.
Our head office in Marseille took close care of the crewmember, organized his admission at the hospital with all surgery arrangements, and finally the stay of the crewmembers’ family during the time of his hospitalization in Marseille.
Considering the crew member’s health condition at the time of his repatriation, the latter was repatriated via a flight at low altitude, with constant air pressure.
Please do not hesitate to contact our head office in Marseille when urgent medical assistance is needed. We can arrange a personalized and cost effective solution for the medical treatment and repatriation of any sick /injured personnel.

We have successfully handled numerous repatriations of stowaways over the past years, mainly from the West African Coast.
Depending on where the stowaways are discovered (at port or at sea), we provide tailor-made solutions to swiftly disembark the stowaway on a cost effective basis. Disembarkation is sometimes possible at the anchorage with no need for the vessel to berth and thus lose time. In such cases, we organize rental of a launch to pick up the stowaway on board and to bring him/them back ashore.
Our wide network enables us to provide you with a choice of location for disembarkation to be cost and time effective.
