This year our goal is to keep families together.
We are raising funds for affordable family accommodation near the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH). Let’s help families to stay close to their loved ones while they are having treatment, surgery or emergency stays.
In the first 12 months of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH) opening, 1089 paediatric patients who lived more than 50km from the hospital were treated at SCUH. Another 340 mums who lived outside of our region were transported to our state-of-the-art maternity unit to deliver their babies – often pre-term.
As our medical teams care for patients, it’s the families who travel long distances to be with their loved ones who we are planning to help. We want to provide a ‘home away from home’ for patients to ensure families can stay together in times of need.
