The Board has appointed Bill Phillpot as the Chair of the SWH Warrnambool Base Hospital Capital Appeal Committee which has taken on the task of raising the $3.5 million needed to provide the necessary equipment to ensure the community has the most modern and technologically advanced health service in regional Australia.
He'll be ably assisted by committee members, Deputy Chair John Hunt, Mike Raselli, Dr Mike Page, SWH Board Directors Sharon Muldoon, Felicity Melican, Chris Logan and Steve Callaghan and Project Manager Deb Emmerson.
‘We truly have a great health service here in Warrnambool that serves the entire South West region and we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ensure that it’s equipped with the most modern technology regional Australia has ever seen,’ says Bill.
‘We are obviously delighted the government has made such a significant investment in Warrnambool but there is always an expectation that the community helps to purchase equipment to complete the project.’
The Capital Appeal Committee intends to call on major donors, philanthropic organisations and business to contribute to this compelling cause. The equipment the appeal will help pay for includes a $600,000 Intensive Care Unit central monitoring system and a $375,000 Special Care Nursery.
Should you be able to assist in any way with this appeal please contact Deb Emmerson on 0409 796 643 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
