Generous supporters helped the Flying Doctor build a new Bundaberg Base in 2019. Take a look around this world-class facility to see what we can achieve together:
It’s a stark contrast with our Mount Isa Base as Ebony can explain.
Not once, but twice, her baby son Ollie was flown to Mount Isa after having open-heart surgery when he was only 13 days old.
As Ebony says, Ollie had the very best care. But she was able to see how basic the facilities at our Mount Isa Base are. “It's very clean,” she says. “But it's just a shed where aircraft live.”
The building is 60 years old and struggles to withstand the extreme weather. There’s no dedicated place for patients and families to wait. Or for members of our aeromedical teams to be briefed, debriefed or receive training.
With the number of calls increasing, we urgently need your help to build a new Aeromedical Base and Patient Transfer Facility in Mount Isa. With your help, we’ll be able to deliver world-class care for years to come.
