Stawell Hospital Foundation donates equipment for enhanced patient care

In a significant step towards enhancing patient recovery, Grampians Health Stawell has introduced two new pieces of equipment, generously donated by Stawell Regional Health Foundation.

The recent Foundation contributions are part of a $70,000 donation given in June to support the Stawell Operating Theatre and Urgent Care Centre.

At the forefront of innovation is the Optiflow Thrive, bringing real benefits across various medical scenarios. From maintaining optimal oxygen levels during general anaesthesia to enhancing patient comfort during procedural sedation and post-anaesthesia recovery.

Complementing the Optiflow Thrive, Grampians Health Stawell has also introduced a new Co2 monitor which provides the ability to monitor Co2 levels in recovery or the day procedure unit. Registered Nurse Kate Wills said “having access to equipment such as these helps us to keep services local and look after our patients with up to date and state of the art equipment”.

Since the committee formed in 1989, Stawell Regional Health Foundation has donated almost $1.5-million to the Stawell hospital and residential services.
