In response to The Surgery Centre Campaign featuring Glenise's story of her hip replacement, your generosity has helped us purchase much-needed equipment for use in the operating theatres at The Surgery Centre, located at the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital.
With your help, we've purchased:
This new equipment helps improve efficiency through the operating theatres which means we can operate on more patients, giving people in pain access to surgery sooner, reducing pain, stress and isolation.
As heart failure continues to impact more people every year, we asked for your support to help us purchase a new portable cardiac ultrasound machine. Your response was overwhelming and we will be able to purchase one machine for use in the Heart Failure Outpatient Clinic, so patients can receive diagnosis and medication even earlier.
Being a portable machine, it may also be used at The Surgery Centre, giving doctors the ability to make bedside diagnosis on higher risk patients pre and post surgery.
"Thank you for your kindness. Together we are helping people with chronic heart failure live a longer, more active life in their community" Associate Professor Doug Johnson, Director, Department of General Medicine.
