The Werribee Hospital Foundation has received a much welcomed donation that will support the growing community of Wyndham and its public healthcare services.
The foundation recently expressed its gratitude to the Werribee Football Club and the Werribee Football Club CEO Mark Penaluna for their recent $5,000 donation and acknowledged the support that has helped them with their mission.
Werribee Hospital Foundation CEO Leanne Down said, “Our mission at the Foundation is to continue to support our growing community of Wyndham with the public health care services needed in our area. It is wonderful coming together with other like-minded organisations in our region to make a real impact for our community”.
The funds will go towards purchasing a GlideScope for use in the Paediatrics and Special Care Nursery at Werribee Mercy Hospital.
This equipment is a video laryngoscope that assists with intubating a young patient to assist with breathing in critical situations when they need help breathing. In short, it provides a clear vision of the airway and enables what might be routine or difficult intubation of a patient.
