Many people in our community like to give a gift to Latrobe Regional Hospital at Christmas to support patient care or assist with the purchase of equipment. However we know it's been a tough year and a donation may not be possible.
So, we're doing something really unusual. We're not going to ask for your money.
Instead, we're going to leave the choice to you. You can choose to make a donation - or not. But if you are able to make a donation this year, we'd like you to choose where your money will go.
There are many departments across LRH to support: Allied Health, Avon Medical Unit, Bass Medical/Surgical Unit, Tanjil Surgical Unit, Thomson Women, Children and Babies Unit, Nicholson Rehabilitation Unit, Nicholson GEM Unit, Macalister Aged Care, Flynn Mental Health Unit, Theatre, Emergency Department, Tambo Emergency Unit, Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, Dialysis, Community Mental Health Service, Cardiology, Prosthetics. Or you may like to support our research team or education and training unit.
When you make your donation online, nominate where you would like your money to go. You'll see a box that says "in honour of a person or occasion".
If you're unable to support LRH this Christmas - that's okay. Keep us in mind in 2021.
We wish you a safe and happy festive season and warm wishes for the year ahead. Please stay COVID-safe.
