Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AS RO­TARY Lodge marks its fourth birth­day, a mother and her pre­ma­ture baby have been the long­est guests, stay­ing for 64 days.

The Lodge, at the Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal, is a home-away-from-home for pa­tients seek­ing med­i­cal treat­ment and car­ers.

The five-bed­room home of­fers low-cost ac­com­mo­da­tion for car­ers, fam­ily mem­bers and pa­tients re­quir­ing med­i­cal treat­ment at the Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal, the Mater and Friendly So­ci­ety Pri­vate hos­pi­tals.

A foun­da­tion man­ages the Lodge with sup­port from theWide Bay Hos­pi­tal and Health Ser­vice.

Foun­da­tion manager Maria Bur­net said the Lodge re­ceived in­cred­i­ble sup­port.

“This gen­eros­ity has changed and im­proved the cir­cum­stances of so many peo­ple who are ill or in­jured, giv­ing birth, un­der­go­ing life-sav­ing treat­ment and those sup­port­ing their loved ones in hos­pi­tal,” she said.

Pa­tients who are not el­i­gi­ble for the Pa­tient Travel Sub­sidy Scheme pay just $40 a per­son or $60 a dou­ble.
