LifeMed was established in 2006 with two ambulances and a vision of serving the community with the highest possible level of emergency medical care available. Our owners were focusing their operations in the Moot area in Pretoria. Today we serve the whole of Pretoria and surrounds as well as Mpumalanga and Limpopo.
We are well known in all the areas where we operate for effectiveness, professionalism and speedy response to all medical emergencies. We are accepted by all medical aids in the country as our rates are well within the rates prescribed by medical aids in South Africa. We also care for people that are not members of medical aids and will never refuse to treat any person in need of care.
We are one of the leading First Aid, Basic Fire Fighting and CPD training service providers in the country. Our Events Medical Management Division has delivered medical support for some of the biggest events in the country and this remains one of the key sections of our business. We believe that the secret to our success during the last year is no secret at all – SERVICE, SERVICE, SERVICE and PERSONAL CARE.
We are service providers to companies like Crisis on Call, International SOS, Europ Assistance, CSIR and Denel Dynamics. We provide 24 Hour Contact Centre Access for Emergency Medical Response to these companies on a national basis through the SAPAESA National Ambulance Network.
We believe that our clients and patients are at the centre of all that we do. We also believe in supporting the communities that we operate in and we are involved in many community projects throughout the year.
Our newest venture is the establishment of an Air Wing by which we can spread our wings to the furthest parts of the country and even beyond the borders. We know that it will be successful as we are putting the same effort into this as with the rest of the company.
We believe that the reason why Life Med is growing from strength to strength is because we really care about people, whether that person is an employee or a client/patient. We have a passion for what we do and believe that by always providing the highest levels of service, our company will continue growing at rates that cannot be explained.
We are proud of our name – Life Med – and we will continue to grow and always focus on our slogan: Your Life – Our Priority.
The World Head Injury Awareness Day falls on March 20th every year and it looks at the number of people who suffer from a mild bump on their head to severe brain injury. The purpose of this day is to remind us on how we could reduce accidents and brain injuries if we are mindful.
A medical emergency happens when least expected.
