Mounties Group proudly supports CareFlight
Over 30 years ago a group of doctors had a shared vision: to create a better medical retrieval service in Australia.
They believed that sick and severely injured patients who needed emergency transportation, should be attended by critical care specialists who can perform 'physician only' procedures. This idea sparked a concept and in turn, CareFlight was born.
A base was established in the grounds of Westmead Hospital and a helicopter was commissioned. Initially, with only one doctor on duty each day, CareFlight flew up to four patients a month.
Over the years the organisation has evolved and expanded. CareFlight doctors now fly from eight bases to destinations throughout Australia and beyond.
Doctors cover shifts on NSW Ambulance Service helicopters, road ambulances and fixed wing air ambulances; on the CareFlight helicopters and planes; and shifts on the CareFlight International Air Ambulance medi-jets which operate out of Sydney, Darwin, Cairns and Perth.
Mounties Group is a proud sponsor of CareFlight and with our $300,000 sponsorship, the doctors, and volunteers at CareFlight, will receive additional devices and mission training to assist them in their selfless rapid response work.
