I’m Dr Claire Cattigan, Director of Barwon Health’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at University Hospital Geelong. I am incredibly proud of our ICU team. They are remarkable, resilient people committed to caring for the community.
At Barwon Health, we are lucky to have the very best who, every day, stand ready to save the lives of those in our community who are critically ill. Health services around the world are facing major challenges with the emergence of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and Barwon Health is there for our community.
The fact remains that our hospital and ICU teams are busy every day, not just in response to COVID-19, and I want to assure you that my team at Barwon Health, and my other colleagues from across the organisation, are ready to respond and care for you now and into the future; This is where you can help.
Now, more than ever, we need your support. Support our frontline staff, who are ready to care for you, when you need us. We ask that you invest in your local health service by making a tax deductable donation to support our work.
During this worldwide Coronavirus crisis, here at Barwon Health, babies are still being born, people still being diagnosed with cancer, trauma patients are still needing surgery and our frontline staff are still providing exceptional healthcare for our community.
We know this is a difficult time for many people in our community but, if you do have the ability to make a donation, it will go a long way to support staff and assist patients who need access to the very best care and treatment.
Your donation will be used to fund vital medical research and clinical trials, support our telehealth teams to provide care to patients in isolation, provide comfort for our elderly and vulnerable patients, and support our world-class infectious diseases team who are working tirelessly to keep us all safe.
A donation today will help enhance your health service, for when you and your loved ones need us.
Care for our patients at Barwon Health never stops.
