The Mercy Cup

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 2018 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.

Critical Care Unit for Werribee Mercy Hospital

The Victorian Government is providing $85 million to extend Werribee Mercy Hospital, giving families in Wyndham access to more beds and extended surgical services.   In addition, the funds allow for the establishment of critical care services.  The project, known as Stage 1C expansion, will commence in early 2017 and include:

  • 56 new inpatient beds
  • 6additional operating theatres
  • a central sterile supply department
  • an 8 bed critical care unit (CCU)

Werribee Hospital Foundation, in support of Mercy Health, has committed to government that we would lead a community appeal to raise an additional $2 million to enhance furnishings and equipment for the CCU and fund the Wellness Garden as a significant part of the overall Stage 1C expansion.

All money raised through this appeal will be used solely to benefit patients at Werribee Mercy Hospital.  Donations to the appeal are tax deductible and can be made in a number of ways.

  • A on off donation
  • A regular donation made periodically over a number of years
  • A bequest

The Critical Care Unit appeal is jointly supported and operated by the Werribee Hospital Foundation and the Mercy Health Foundation.
