St John of God Foundation is thrilled to announce we are a Channel 7 Telethon Trust Beneficiary for 2024. This latest funding will support maternity and paediatric equipment across our WA hospitals. The generous grants from Telethon will make a big difference to babies and their families across the state.
Previous funding from Telethon has already been utilised at St John of Murdoch Hospital, with the provision of a baby ventilator for the Special Care Nursery late last year. The state-of-the-art ventilator helps to ensure caregivers are providing the best care to new babies in the hospital, and means caregivers can provide high level oxygen requirements for pre-term babies prior to transfer, ensuring better long-term outcomes.
Also in the last year, Telethon funding supported the purchase of a fetal monitoring machine for St John of God Subiaco Hospital, which is used for monitoring women in labour, allowing greater mobility and enabling mothers to assume positions of comfort in labour. The machine will enable caregivers to deliver safer care and provide a better patient experience.
We are incredibly proud to partner with Telethon and immensely grateful for their ongoing commitment to WA families in St John of God hospitals. Watch this space for more details on the new equipment being funded in our hospitals to support new babies and their parents.
