It is extremely sad, but unfortunately thousands of sick newborn babies rely on the facilities and services available at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead each year. They rely on doctors, nurses and specialised equipment for help.
Seven Hills RSL recently donated $105,000 to fund five Philips Intellivue Patient Monitors for babies at the Grace Centre’s NICU. These monitors support the most at-risk newborn babies at the hospital by facilitating early diagnosis, accelerating care delivery and enabling informed decision-making.
Today the hospital staff were very generous with their time and invited our Directors to see first-hand how our contribution is helping to save lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with those little patients and their families doing it tough ahead of Easter. The visit certainly does put things into perspective!
