Hospital foundation grateful for support
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
