Werribee Hospital Foundation Chairman Nik Tsardakis recently announced the foundation, which has been supporting the Werribee Mercy Hospital for almost 25 years, will be providing $400,000 toward the new Critical Care Unit to be opened in 2018.
Mr Tsardakis said “Our community wants access to the very best public hospital care locally and that is reflected in the support and donations we have received over the years”.
“The hospital’s expansion of 56 additional beds, six operating theatres and eight critical care beds is an exciting development in our community. This will be the first time a critical care unit will be available in Wyndham and it will allow families to be closer to their loved ones if they require intensive medical care.”
The Werribee Hospital Foundation is raising funds from the Wyndham community to help fit-out the Critical Care Unit with the very best medical equipment and patient services.
