His­tory of help­ing pa­tients’ fam­i­lies

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

WISH­LIST is no stranger to as­sist­ing with fam­ily ac­com­mo­da­tion to ben­e­fit hos­pi­tal pa­tients.

Ear­lier this year in May, Red Cross handed over the Reed House to Wish­list.

The Reed House is lo­cated near Nam­bour Hos­pi­tal and has been avail­able for nine years.

It has acted as a sec­ond home to al­most 16,000 guests.

“Most peo­ple have gone through the stress of a med­i­cal emer­gency or need­ing to be close to a loved one dur­ing treat­ment,” Wish­list chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Lisa Rowe said.

“Hav­ing this ac­ces­si­bil­ity is so valu­able.”

It is this valu­able ser­vice that Wish­list is hop­ing to ex­pand upon with The House the Coast Built project for pa­tients re­ceiv­ing treat­ment at the Sunshine Coast Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal.
