MainPower is a proud supporter of Māia Health Foundation who are celebrating the completion of one of Canterbury’s biggest fundraising campaigns, and the landing of a future-proofed helipad at Christchurch Hospital.
Māia started its fundraising mission in 2018 and has successfully hit the $2 million target.
Patients rescued by chopper are currently transported by ambulance from Hagley Park to Christchurch Hospital, adding approximately 13 minutes to their transfer time. The rooftop helipad will enable patients to get to hospital sooner and free up valuable emergency resources.
The world class asset, which includes a clinical support unit for specialist care on touch down, is now complete and ready for action when the new hospital opens in early 2020.
