Werribee Hospital Foundation

The foundation plays a vital role supporting public hospital services in Wyndham. Established in 1993 following a generous bequest, the foundation boasts a proud record of accepting donations, managing funds astutely, and providing significant financial support to our community’s public hospital.

The foundation also provides the opportunity for individuals, families, community groups and corporations, to make an enduring and positive contribution to the Wyndham community; safe in the knowledge that all donated funds will benefit Wyndham’s public hospital services.

Intensive Care Unit opens

The new intensive care unit at Werribee Mercy Hospital has opened and will provide the people of Wyndham more theatres and beds. Hospital waiting times for emergency care and elective surgery will be reduced and patients will get the treatment they need sooner.

This significant expansion includes 8 intensive care beds, 6 additional operating theatres, a central sterile department as well as 56 inpatient beds and a multi-story car-park.

The expansion has been funded through $85 million from the state government, $6 million from Mercy Health and $2 million from the Mercy Health Foundation and Werribee Hospital Foundation.

Wyndham community can expect quality health outcomes from the hospital as it continues to meet the needs of this rapidly growing community.

Werribee Hospital Foundation will continue working closely with Werribee Mercy Hospital and the local community to build a public health service that meets community expectations and growing capacity.

The Mercy Cup 2018

Werribee District Football Club player and fundraising ambassador, Gavin Donnon is leading the charge to help raise vital funds for the purchase of life saving equipment.

Round 15 on Saturday 4th August Werribee Districts Football Club will play Wyndhamvale Football Club at Soldiers Reserve in Werribee, in a battle for premiership points and bragging rights for the Mercy Cup.

The focus of this year’s Mercy Cup is the purchase of a life saving blood analysis unit, critical for analysing blood quickly and speeding up the treatment of patients suffering bleeding during obstetrics.

Werribee Hospital Foundation is grateful to Gavin, the Werribee District Football Club and many businesses who are supporting this fundraising campaign.
