STAND WITH US - COVID-19 EQUIPMENT APPEAL
Bass Coast Health is undertaking capital works to create a High Dependency Unit (HDU) to provide more specialist care to patients who are extremely ill. We are looking to raise $200,000 for the purchase of monitors, ventilators and other specialised equipment to provide care to our patients with high dependency needs.
This program is being fast tracked to open in readiness for the pandemic, and will continue to be run thereafter, providing a long term service for our community, reducing the need to transfer to Melbourne. This will enable us to provide more intensive care to patients who are extremely ill and require intubation and complex medical intervention. We know that this equipment will save lives. We are appealing for your help.

Bass Coast Health is a sub-regional public health service that serves the community of Bass Coast and South Gippsland Shires. Our goal is Excellence in Care by delivering person centred care to improve health, wellbeing, care experience and health outcomes, within our community. We deliver safe, high quality care and are growing our service capacity and capability including access to meet local and sub-regional needs. We have a skilled, motivated workforce that is highly valued. We are embracing innovation and technology
Bass Coast Health receives significant funding support from both the Commonwealth and State Governments to deliver care. We also receive Government support for projects such as the completion of the Phillip Island Health Hub and Stage 1 of the Wonthaggi Hospital Re-development.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Bass Coast Health welcomes and relies on the generous support of local businesses and our community. As our service grows, so does our need to provide state of the art technology for optimal patient care. Our service also includes the Phillip Island Health Hub that provides 24 hour patient care in the Urgent Care Centre, so we must provide the latest technology for the emergency departments of both Wonthaggi and Phillip Island sites. Stage 1 of the new hospital has already begun and is due to be completed in 2023.
All donations, big and small, will make a difference. Please be assured that your donation will hugely benefit our health service and community and together we will grow quality health services locally.
