The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter's Open Day returns next month and the award-winning Hamilton-based motel Argent Motor Lodge are once again proud sponsors of the life saving service.
Taking place on March 18th at Waikato Hospital, Pembroke Street, The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter Open Day is a great opportunity for people to get up close and personal to your local rescue helicopter, meet the crew and learn all the finer operation details.
Argent Motor Lodge, which is the closest motel to the Waikato and Braemar Hospitals, assists with financial donations to the helicopter trust which aids them to continue the remarkable work they do everyday.
"Due to our close location we can often hear them taking off, going to save people's lives. So we feel very honoured to be supporting the vitally important work they do," says Argent Motor Lodge owner Graeme Hunt.
Based at the Jennian Hangar at the Waikato Hospital in Pembroke Street, Hamilton, the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter provides a 24-hour emergency service, 365 days a year. Available through the emergency 111 call system, their rapid response rescue helicopters bring life-saving equipment, rescue personnel and trauma-trained medics directly to the patient.
Argent Motor Lodge is only 500m from the main entrance of Waikato Hospital and the landing pad for the Waikato Westpac Helicopter. "They are practically our neighbours, so it made clear sense that we should sponsor them," adds Graeme.
Argent Motor Lodge's rooms provide a comfortable and relaxing environment for anyone who is need to stay close to the Waikato and Braemar Hospitals. "Often our guests are people who come here to stay while either supporting a sick relative or in some cases they are the patient who are waiting to go in for a procedure or treatment at the hospital," says Graeme. The staff are welcoming, friendly and can help take the stress out of your stay.
