A Brief History of Colmed Group
Established under the auspices of Colbrow Healthcare, a long standing and reputable health care service provider established in 1957; Colmed Group commenced in 2006 as First Aid @ Events, became Colbrow Medics in 2013 and finally morphed into Colmed Group in 2020 in order to be capable to incorporate a larger variety of services.
We are still:
- A large specialist healthcare placement organisation.
- Established in recognition of the need for a reliable and professional first aid service in Victoria.
- Providing unrivalled services to our clients, drawing on the resources, expertise and services of the other divisions within the group when required.
Throughout its years of operation, the division has grown and evolved into a leading pre-hospital healthcare provider in Victoria, with operations nationally. The name Colmed Group was adopted in 2020 to show the changing nature of the organisation, and better reflect the current capabilities of the company which has expanded and evolved into the provision of pre-hospital care services (both first aid and paramedical care), as well as first aid training, first aid supplies, hire equipment, immunization services, safety and other workforce.
We hold extensive experience in the provision of single-response event first aid coverage as well as 24 hour, multiple-site event medical services for major events.
Event First Aid Services rendered to venues, sporting clubs, construction sites, productions, major music festivals and corporate clients, such as Metro Trains Melbourne, have been completed with great success.
We have our own dedicated management and operational team who works in conjunction with the larger group’s management to ensure that the best level of pre-hospital care is provided to all clients.
Under ISO 9001 accreditation, has developed systems to ensure consistency in all core processes.
With a dedicated team in recruitment and training, the selection of Colmed Group’s pre-hospital care personnel and other workforce is second to none. At present, Colmed Group employs over 200 pre-hospital care and other personnel throughout Australia, including qualified and experienced First Responders, Ambulance Paramedics, Registered Nurses and Medical Practitioners, ensuring that our commitments and obligations to our clients can at all times remain fulfilled. Colmed Group operates from a large office and warehouse space in Noble Park North, Victoria, and can draw on the experience, resources and healthcare expertise of a large group of personnel with various backgrounds and careers.
