Remote Medical International® (RMI) is a leading provider of comprehensive medical support services designed to enhance the health and safety of our customers operating in remote and challenging locations, on land and on water.
Our maritime experience ranges from coordinating pre-employment screening for US-flagged carriers to staffing medical providers for international transits from Brazil to Australia. We work closely with clients to manage their workforce’s health throughout the duration of each assignment, with a strong focus on the prevention of medical problems through proactive health management starting before the mariner is ever onboard the vessel. When cases do arise, our sophisticated global medical supply chain management service can supply you with the appropriate equipment required to provide care.
With RMI, our clients see positive results such as reduced occupational injuries, lost time incidents, and medical evacuations.
I just wanted to write you a quick note of appreciation for the services that your team at RMI has provided Military Sealift Command since the start of our contract in October 2015. Since that time, several of our ships have reached out for medical advice and the feedback from our Medical Service Officers has been very positive. From all reports, our ships have always been able to reach one of your doctors within minutes, and have been given sound advice that takes into account the medical capabilities aboard our ships. Thank you again for providing outstanding service and support to Military Sealift Command.
– T.J. Bergan, LCDR MC USN, Force Medical Officer, Military Sealift Command
Remote and Challenging
The maritime industry works in demanding conditions, in that it is often geographically isolated from good medical care, and in that flexibility is a requirement for successful performance. Our services meet the medical needs of the maritime environment through systems designed specifically for flexibility, short turnarounds, and comprehensive medical care throughout all phases.
Integrated Medical Support
With the myriad of factors needed for successful performance, the last thing maritime companies need is multiple medical subcontractors to manage. Our comprehensive services include pre-employment screening programs, medical supplies that meet flag-state requirements, telemedicine programs, medical staffing, and more. Using an integrated medical service provider saves our clients time and money.
Continuity of Care
We provide seamless care for our clients through all stages of a medical event. This includes detailed medical emergency response planning, audits, and continuous testing. When a patient needs a higher level of care, we take action using our vetted network of ground transportation, air ambulances, and medical facilities specific to our client’s area of operations.

US Government Vessel Operator
We provide emergency medical advice to all of our client’s government owned and operated ships and units located worldwide through our Topside Assistance service. The client’s medical providers on board the vessels can contact our Topside Assistance at any time, 24/7, and be connected to a physician for medical advice within minutes. We can provide recommendations for those seeking professional medical treatment from other ships or ashore. We take into account what resources are necessary and available, distance from sources of professional medical treatment, and the expense of obtaining such treatment.
