Our Community Cares helps to improve the patient experience
Nepean Blue Mountains LHD is thankful to be supported by several local charities whose fundraising efforts help to enhance the patient experience at our hospitals and health centres.
Our Community Cares is one group whose significant efforts continue to benefit patients at Nepean Hospital. The volunteer-based charity does important work helping members of the Penrith community who are in need, elderly or undergoing medical care.
In the last two years, Our Community Cares has donated over $27,000 to the Nepean Cancer and Wellness Centre and Nepean Hospital’s cancer and aged care wards. The funds have helped provide comfortable chemotherapy chairs, sensory activities for people with dementia, recliner chairs for stem cell therapy and lowline beds for aged care.
Each year, Our Community Cares also provides Christmas presents for Nepean Hospital’s aged care patients.
Nepean Blue Mountains LHD Chief Executive, Kay Hyman thanks Our Community Cares for their ongoing efforts.
“The wonderful work done by Our Community Cares continues to help some of our most vulnerable patients. Their fundraising, made possible by donations from local businesses and our community, is making a real difference for patients under our care.”
“I wish to sincerely thank Our Community Cares for the support they have given us to help improve the experience of patients at Nepean Hospital and the Nepean Cancer and Wellness Centre,” Ms Hyman says.
