About Us

Snowy Hydro SouthCare has been the primary provider of aero-medical and rescue helicopter services to the people in the ACT and south-eastern NSW.

Snowy Hydro SouthCare provides care through three main types of missions, including primary missions where the helicopter provides rapid response to medical traumas, secondary missions where the helicopter transports critically ill patients between hospitals for specialised care and non-medical missions where the helicopter provides search and rescue as well as bushfire support functions.

While the helicopter is based on the Monaro Highway in Canberra, Snowy Hydro SouthCare’s primary service area extends east to the coast, south to the Victorian border, and west to Hay and north almost to Sydney. As Snowy Hydro SouthCare completes an average of three missions every two days, it is clear that this life-saving service is an important part of our community.
