New room to ben­e­fit pa­tients

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

PA­TIENTS at Mundubbera Hos­pi­tal will have ac­cess to state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties thanks to the gen­eros­ity of a stead­fast cit­i­zen, El­iz­a­beth As­mus.

Mrs As­mus died in 2010 and gen­er­ously do­nated sig­nif­i­cant funds to the hos­pi­tal through­out the fi­nal years of her life.

As a re­sult of th­ese con­tri­bu­tions, the Mundubbera MPHS has been able to con­duct sig­nif­i­cant cap­i­tal works, which has di­rectly im­proved the fa­cil­ity and ben­e­fited all who ac­cess the ser­vice.

The last of th­ese projects has been the up­grad­ing of a cen­tral bath­room into an ex­tra pa­tient room.

Di­rec­tor of nurs­ing Jan-Adele Hotz said th­ese con­tri­bu­tions were greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

“It is the gen­eros­ity of the Mundubbera com­mu­nity, and in­di­vid­u­als within the com­mu­nity, that make the Mundubbera MPHS the won­der­ful fa­cil­ity that it is to­day,” Mrs Hotz said.

In part­ner­ship with the Mundubbera Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary, the re­fur­bish­ment of such ar­eas within the hos­pi­tal has di­rectly im­proved the en­vi­ron­ment within the hos­pi­tal, Mrs Hotz said.
