Beds on the way to peo­ple in need

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

Richard McGee­han is both a mem­ber of the Ro­tary Club and a Board Mem­ber at Euroa Health.

Mr McGee­han said the un­used beds would make a huge dif­fer­ence to those less for­tu­nate over­seas.

“Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional will take these beds and send them to hos­pi­tals in a third world coun­try, who are des­per­ately short of beds.

“There is noth­ing wrong with these, and they all still work fine. Gran­iteHill has all new beds, so if we’re not us­ing them, why not send them some­where they can help oth­ers?”

While a use has been found for the beds that used to be in the old aged care build­ings, the Euroa Health Board is still look­ing for ways to utilise the now emp­tier build­ings them­selves.

Although some ideas have been floated, none have been taken on, and for the fore­see­able fu­ture they will re­main un­oc­cu­pied.
