Our history

"More than 30 years caring for your health"

Helicopteros Sanitarios was founded in 1988 in Marbella.

In 1988, the N-340 road which ran between Sotogrande and Málaga, was an accident black spot, where more than 38% of people who required urgent medical assistance, died before reaching the hospital due to delay and lack of professional assistance. The same was happening with patients suffering from serious diseases that urgently needed to get to a hospital.

There was no such service, either public or private, so Helicopters Sanitarios was the first to take on this role.
