Ryde Hospital Christmas Appeal 2018

“When I heard Ryde Hospital needed new heart monitors, I wanted to get involved. This is my way of saying thank you to all the wonderful staff for being there for me along my personal journey” - Joan - 

OUR CHRISTMAS WISH IS TO PROVIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE EMERGENCY CARE FOR OUR PATIENTS.

Your generous gift of $50 this Christmas will help us buy a much-needed advanced heart monitoring system to find early detection of heart disease and give the best chance of survival to our patients.

More Australians will die this year from cardiovascular disease than any other disease. Early detection gives the best chance of survival. A variety of symptoms can be associated with heart disease and this means the process of making an accurate diagnosis can be complex.

The current heart monitoring system in Ryde Hospital’s Emergency Department needs replacement. This exciting equipment cannot integrate with the latest heart diagnostic tools that provide more accurate and timely information to manage and control cardiovascular disease.

This Christmas, with your help, our team in the Emergency Department can not only service those within our community suffering from heart disease, but also treat those who may not even know they have a heart condition until they find themselves in our Emergency Department, then safely returning patients to their families sooner.

HOW YOUR GIFT WILL HELP:

Costing a little more than $240,000, we will need absolutely everyone’s support to meet our target.

Your gift of $100 could help buy a heart monitor to collect the data while they’re in the ED.

Or your very generous gift of $200 could help buy the sophisticated central diagnostics system that stores and analyses in real time, all the data collected by a patient’s heart monitor, regardless of where they are in the hospital. This is a critical tool to help us detect and manage heart disease.

Our Christmas wish is to have the very best equipment available so that we can safely return our patients to their families, sooner. 

Please donate TODAY.
