Medical Rescue is an experienced provider of remote Urgent Care Medical Centres. The company have Urgent Care Centres across Australia and New Zealand including at some of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest ski resorts at Coronet Peak, The Remarkable, Mt Hutt, Treble Cone and Mt Buller.
The company employ over 100 clinical doctors, nurses and paramedics to resource our medical facilities and look after more than 8000 trauma patients each year. Caring for patients in remote locations means managing patients in challenging and often hostile environments where distance and weather are key factors in how we care for and evacuate our patients.
All urgent care medical centres are equipped to the appropriate standards and staffed with suitably qualified personnel. The same clinical governance and audit processes applied to our rescue helicopter and air ambulance services apply to our urgent care centres.
Medical Rescue holds accreditation with QLD Health to operate a commercial Paramedic Service and holds the necessary poisons permits with every state it operates in. This allows all our staff to carry all the necessary equipment and medications to handle any emergency situation in the out of hospital environment.
At Medical Rescue we have a well developed training and continuing professional development program for all our staff which ensure that all of our clinical staff are practicing the best possible evidenced based medicine and undertake weekly training and education sessions.
