EOFY Special Care Nursery Appeal

End of Financial Year (EOFY) is fast approaching and you’ll soon be able to lodge your tax return, so why not make a special gift before the 30 June 2019 to the EOFY Special Care Nursery Appeal at Werribee Mercy Hospital.

It is a frightening experience giving birth to a sick or premature baby, as many local Wyndham families know first hand. The Special Care Nursery cared for over 700 sick babies last year, and that figure is growing.

To continue to provide the professional and caring service that is afforded to many Wyndham families, we are seeking, with your help, to raise $5,000 for equipment to support sick babies.

This EOFY Special Care Appeal is asking everyday people and local businesses to make a donation before 30 June 2019.

INTENSIVE CARE UNIT OPENS AUGUST 2018

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.
