New Equipment Destined For Hospital Wards Thanks To Contribution Fund
The Broken Hill Hospital’s biomedical technicians have been busy preparing new equipment for use on the wards thanks to a generous donation by the Broken Hill Contribution Fund.
The Broken Hill Contribution Fund has donated $40,793 to the hospital to purchase a number of items for use across the health service, including:
Most of the equipment has arrived and is currently in Biomed for acceptance testing and tagging.
Kevin Sinclair, BH Contribution Fund Secretary/Public Officer, said the Fund took great pleasure in making its bi-annual donation to the health service.
“It’s all equipment that benefits the health service and ultimately the community. The hospital has a wish list of equipment they would like and after prioritising what they would like, we’re more than happy to assist,” he said.
The Health Service is greatly appreciative of the BH Contribution Fund and its assistance over the years in purchasing equipment for the hospital.
