The Rega Principle

Rescue hoist operation with the H145 helicopter

Emergency medical assistance by air

Rega comes to the aid of people in distress, providing swift, professional medical assistance by air. In order to do this, it employs state-of-the-art operating resources, such as helicopters and air-ambulances. Rega’s workforce comprises qualified, experienced staff.

In the service of its patients

Rega acts according to medical necessity and in the service of its patients. It is a privately run, non-profit foundation, which operates independently of the State or of financial interests. Rega's task is to rescue, not to pass judgement on right or wrong, guilt or innocence.

Funded by its patrons

Rega is supported and funded by its patrons. In grateful acknowledgement of this support, Rega can waive the costs of rescue missions carried out on patrons’ behalf, in the event that insurance companies or any other third party are not liable to pay and thus not required to reimburse the costs of the rescue operation, whether wholly or in part.
