Aspen Medical is the world's leading provider of healthcare solutions in the Defence environment. We specialise in on-base health services for Defence personnel, battlefield casualty first aid training and provide mobile deployable hospital solutions and other medical equipment to Defence forces internationally. We have supported the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) and other international Defence forces on a number of overseas missions in remote, challenging or under-resourced locations.
We became the first private organisation in the world to provide on-base healthcare to Defence personnel when we were contracted to provide all health services at the Puckapunyal Military Area (PMA) in Victoria, Australia, in 2005. More Defence bases followed at Albury-Wodonga in Victoria, Townsville in Far North Queensland and at multiple sites in Perth, Western Australia. Our success in delivering healthcare solutions at these bases resulted in us being subcontracted in June 2012 by Medibank Health Solutions to deliver the complete On-base Health Services to the Australian Defence Force (ADF). Under this contract we deliver a broad range of multidisciplinary medical and allied health services to 52 Defence sites around Australia covering 80,000 personnel.
In addition to our on-base healthcare expertise we have also provide Primary Healthcare, Emergency Health, Dental Health and Aero-Medical Evacuation (AME) services to Defence forces on overseas missions. As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) we provide world class training in battlefield casualty first aid and are contracted by the Australian Department of Defence to deliver the 'Care of Battle Casualties' first aid training course to all personnel deploying to the Middle East. We also provide medical equipment to Defence forces including incinerators and deployable mobile hospitals.
