BookToday Touched by The Bays Hospital When people mention The Bays Hospital it is usually an Ah I remember moment for most people.
With comments like, my kids were born there, I ve been there many times, my mother used to work there, my grandfather planted the first tree in 1937, my great grandfather fell off his horse and broke his leg, and my grandmother was one of the first babies born there, it is a clear reflection of the numbers of people who have been touched by this community hospital.
Since The Mornington Bush Nursing Hospital became The Bays Hospital Group in 1987 not much has changed other than the name.
The Bays Hospital is still community owned, still has members, is still a registered charity and a not for profit organisation.
The hospital still relies on donations from patients, local community organisations and philanthropic trusts because unlike the local public hospitals, The Bays receives no direct funding support from Federal or State Governments.
In the last 10 years The Bays Hospital has admitted almost 70,000 patients from the Peninsula.
Unfortunately there are no statistics that go back as far as 1937 but the imagination runs wild to think of how much of a difference this hospital has made in the lives of Peninsula residents in that time.
Looking towards the future, The Bays has recently commenced a building project that will bring 19 new rooms, two extra state of the art operating theatres, a purpose built day surgery unit, a new ambulance entry and will include support services such as a nurse call and internal paging system.
The hospital is asking anyone that has been touched by The Bays Hospital or The Mornington Bush Nursing hospital to consider making a donation this year to assist in the development of what is the last community owned acute hospital in Victoria.
Any donations received will contribute greatly to the health and wellbeing of local residents for years to come and donations are fully tax deductable.
Donations can be sent to Public Relations, The Bays Hospital Group, PO Box 483, Mornington 3931 or for further details by ringing 5976 5242.
