Being at hospital is understandably a distressing experience for many children. So with help from generous people like you, we plan to build a new children’s playground at Werribee Mercy Hospital.
The play area will be located outside in a small section of the hospital grounds that is currently unused, accessed via the waiting room of the Outpatient Clinics building.
A playground would give our youngest visitors a chance to get outdoors in the fresh air for a play and some exercise.
It would provide a bright moment of fun when children are struggling with sickness or injury – or they have a brother, sister or parent who is battling ill health.
Provide some fun and distraction…
Your support for our project would put smiles on children’s faces at a time when they may not have much to smile about.
Adding some happiness to their day will make a huge difference to how a child feels about what is happening to them.
This will also be a space where parents have the welcome opportunity to relax for a short while and connect with each other.
Improve experience for a growing numbers of patients…
This service is increasingly needed to support growing numbers of patients and their families who are visiting the hospital after a recent expansion.
“If we can put in a playground and make the experience of families enjoyable as opposed to stressful, that would be absolutely fantastic,” says Elizabeth Wilson, Outpatient Clinics Nurse Unit Manager at Werribee Mercy Hospital.
“But we need the help of donors to be able to give that to our patients.”
Please donate today so Mercy Health Foundation can support Werribee Mercy Hospital to build a children’s playground. Together, we can keep advancing care and improving life outcomes for those in need.
