Royal Children’s Hospital – Neonatal intensive care unit

NNU  Ventillator-1

After a tour of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Children’s Hospital gave us an insight into the incredible work done by the dedicated doctors and nurses to save the lives of their most fragile and needy patients and to offer support to their families, we at Strathmore Community Bank became aware of the opportunity to sponsor cots in the ward to insure that these tiny patients have the best equipment possible to provide them the best opportunity at life.

We are now very proud to sponsor four cots in the ward each year and to have also been privileged to donate a high frequency oscillatory ventilator.

We have always considered sponsorship to be an important part of the support of our communities and when we became aware of the possibility to assist the NICU at the hospital we jumped at the opportunity.

We were recently invited to tour the old and the new wards in the hospital and to see the cots and the ventilator in use.  This gave us great pleasure to know that our shareholders and our community are making a difference to the lives of the babies and their families and perhaps making it a little easier for the dedicated staff to continue with their amazing work.

We at Strathmore Community Bank are very pleased to be able to make a difference to the lives of the very special patients.  The hospitalisation of a child is a most heartbreaking time and for us to be able to help brings a sense of pride and true fulfilment.  We are proud that we are able to ensure the unit is supported in its mission to provide the best possible care for our sickest babies.
