There is something special about people who freely give up their time to help others.

We have a band of volunteers who support patients, their families and hospital staff.

There are volunteer drivers who transport patients unable to access public transport or drive themselves to an appointment at the hospital. On average our drivers transport more than 30 patients a week.

General volunteers provide valuable support throughout the hospital. They're friendly faces offering books and magazines to patients, handing out meals to people undergoing chemotherapy or dialysis and supporting family members sitting with a patient in the Emergency Department. There are even volunteers who help maintain some of our equipment, like wheelchairs.

Some of our volunteers are retirees while others have a close connection to the hospital or just a desire to reach out to people in need.

Our volunteers contribute many skills and so much expertise to our service.

We're striving to provide a quality health service to the region and we're proud our community is part of that journey.

Our tax time appeal for mums-to-be

Help us bring the next generation of Gippslanders into the world safely. Support our appeal to purchase a new ultrasound machine.

The latest ultrasound equipment will provide our obstetricians and midwives with superior imaging quality of an unborn baby to monitor their growth and health. If we can pick up on changes in a baby's development, we may be in a better position to prevent complications during birth.
