Hos­pi­tal foun­da­tion grate­ful for sup­port

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

I would like to say a heart­felt thank you to all those who sup­ported Pohlen Hos­pi­tal this year through the Foun­da­tion.

The year has sim­ply flown. Many op­por­tu­ni­ties have pre­sented them­selves through­out 2011 and we have done our best to utilise these for the good of Pohlen.

We are de­lighted to have raised $124,000 dur­ing the last fi­nan­cial year.

This is tes­ta­ment to the very gen­er­ous na­ture of our com­mu­nity.

Our suc­cess is not only mea­sured in mone­tary terms but also by how our com­mu­nity sup­ports us. We are thrilled to bits when an or­gan­i­sa­tion, a fam­ily or a per­son says to us ‘‘this is what we can do for our hos­pi­tal’’.

Whether it is spon­sor­ship, vol­un­teers who help us with events, groups who sup­port us, buy­ing a ticket for one of our events, or for a raf­fle or goods in kind given, we ap­pre­ci­ate it all.

Com­bined, this sup­port makes a huge im­pact on what Pohlen can of­fer back to our com­mu­nity in terms of health­care.

This year we have sup­ported the Hos­pi­tal Trust Board’s New Wing Project by way of pro­vid­ing funds for the elec­tri­cal and hot water up­grade which was re­quired prior to the new wing be­ing built.

We have pro­vided funds to en­able the pur­chase of a foetal heart mon­i­tor, an elec­tro­car­dio­graph mon­i­tor, a con­vec­tion oven to as­sist with the pro­duc­tion of Meals on Wheels, a foetal thumb pulse, an in­tra­venous mon­i­tor and sev­eral pres­sure care aids.

We have also been able to pro­vide the funds so that our Out­door Ex­er­cise and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Fa­cil­ity and as­so­ci­ated pro­grammes are free to use for all adults in our com­mu­nity.

I would like to wish ev­ery­one a very merry Christ­mas

Thank you
