“Tem­po­rary sig­nage is in place while we are await­ing new sig­nage and brochures, book­ings are still the same and can be made via the foun­da­tion of­fice on 4150 2863. This move is very ex­cit­ing for not only the foun­da­tion, which has been lob­by­ing for some­thing within the hospi­tal cam­pus for some years, but also pa­tients and car­ers who can be closer to loved ones,” Ms Bur­net said.

“We will still also of­fer ac­com­mo­da­tion to those people us­ing the Friendly So­ci­ety Pri­vate Hospi­tal and Mater Hospi­tal.”

Ms Bur­net said the foun­da­tion was grate­ful to theWide Bay Hospi­tal and Health Ser­vice for this op­por­tu­nity.

“Once new brochures and posters are com­plete, all hos­pi­tals, doc­tor surg­eries, de­part­ments etcetera will re­ceive copies,” she said.

Ms Bur­net said the foun­da­tion was plan­ning an open day at Ro­tary Lodge, where mem­bers of the pub­lic could check out the new fa­cil­i­ties.

“An open day will be held in the near fu­ture,” she con­firmed.
