Stryker Chair

Stryker Chair

The new Stryker Chair is a popular item in the Dialysis Unit, after a grateful patient generously left a bequest in their will specifically for the upgrade. The chair is used to transport patients to and from their vehicles, making it easier for them to transfer in and out of, which is extremely helpful as patients are often frail and fatigued after their dialysis. Thanks to the initial contribution from the dialysis patient and additional donations from community members, the patient’s wish become a reality for the Dialysis Unit, making the new equipment all the more significant to the Unit staff.

The fundraising team at Ballarat Health Services supports fundraising and partnership activity that will enable BHS’ delivery of excellent care close to home. Fundraising income is used to provide equipment, programs and services in priority areas where it is not reasonably expected to be funded by the government in the near future.

Ballarat Health Services Foundation Ltd is a community managed company dedicated to raising, managing and distributing funds, which advance the facilities and programs at Ballarat Health Services.

Both Ballarat Health Services and Ballarat Health Services Foundation Ltd welcome donations particularly at the end of financial year, donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.
