Lorne Community Hosptial
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR RURAL HOSPITAL DURING COVID-19
Our hospital is under increasing pressure as the scale and impact of COVID-19 continues to grow. The impact of the pandemic will be long lasting, especially over the next 6-12 months.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP?
Our amazing staff are currently working around the clock to prepare for an outbreak and keep our community safe and well informed. However, we are starting to feel the true impact of this additional and excessive strain. Therefore, we really do need your support, more than ever before.
By supporting this year’s appeal your donation will:
- Provide education and training to upskill staff, especially in our urgent care and acute clinical staff.
- Upgrade facilities/technology and equipment to meet the changing pandemic requirements.
- Increase our workforce, particularly medical staff over the next 12 months. With rural hospitals already facing a workforce shortage, it is vital to attract casual staff.
- Allow us to further develop innovative ways of interacting with our communities via telehealth and other platforms. We are all experiencing the extraordinary circumstances of COVID- 19 and we acknowledge the severe implications for our community. We truly value your support and amazing
contribution you all make to the Lorne Community Hospital.
Please stay safe and look after yourself and each other during this difficult time.
