The generous efforts of Eastern Health donors and volunteers have been celebrated with the latest storyboard unveiled at Angliss Hospital recently.

The storyboard showcases the importance of volunteers, community groups, corporate partners, trusts and foundations in assisting Eastern Health to provide the best care possible for patients.

Eastern Health Foundation Director Anne Gribbin said it was particularly special to celebrate generosity at the Angliss Hospital site.

“The gift of giving is responsible for turning the very first idea to create Angliss Hospital into a reality over 75 years ago,” Ms Gribbin said.

She thanked those who had shared their personal experiences on the storyboard.

“Each person has their own reasons for giving, which are so uplifting and inspiring.”

Angliss Hospital Chief of Clinical and Site Operations Ben Kelly said the storyboard highlights the important role donors and volunteers play in improving the patient experience and overall community health.

“Contributions allow for special projects to be undertaken, new equipment to be purchased, improved facilities and comfortable care to be provided,” he said.

It was officially launched on Tuesday October 6 at an event attended by a number of special guests including members of the Chandler and Angliss families, whose philanthropy was central in the development of the hospital.

The Angliss Hospital storyboard is the second in a series to be installed across Eastern Health’s major sites, following the unveiling of the Peter James Centre storyboard in November 2014. Each storyboard specifically highlights significant contributors to that individual site.

The storyboard can be viewed in the main foyer of the Angliss Hospital.
