Nelson Marlborough Health operates three helipads under Civil Aviation Authority requirements at the following facilities:

  • Nelson Hospital
  • Wairau Hospital
  • Murchison Health Centre.

The helipads are used to transport critically-ill patients to and from these facilities. They are a vital component of our services.


Safety procedures on the helipads ensure the safety of the helicopter crew, our staff and other people in the area.

Access to the helipads is closed during landing and take-offs.
