Nepean Hospital swings open its doors
16 Oct 2019
People usually come to hospital to heal and recover, but on Friday 08 November 2019, Nepean Hospital is inviting the public to step inside, have a chat with our staff and find out more about one of the state’s busiest hospitals.
The Hospital will again be hosting an Open Day for the public to discover how it is promoting healthy living and supporting its patients.
Nepean Hospital General Manager, Brett Williams says the open day is designed to be engaging and educational for all members of the community to enjoy.
“This year we have over 30 stalls, some operated by our skilled staff, which will be providing useful health tips, hands on demonstrations and information about the services offered by the hospital,” says Mr Williams.
Activities on the day include:
- CPR demonstrations
- Free blood pressure and glucose checks
- Health Stalls including pharmacy and haematology
- Teddy Bear Hospital Clinic
- Face painting
- Market and food stalls
- and many more!
“We know when people visit the hospital they want a short a visit as possible. Open Day is an opportunity to stay just that little bit longer and get to know our friendly staff. I encourage everyone from the local community to come along, have a good time and perhaps learn a thing or two on the day.”
This year’s Open Day will conclude with the District’s Annual Public Meeting (APM) where Chief Executive, Kay Hyman will present a Year in Review reflecting on the District’s achievements and what the LHD has been doing to ensure the best of care for its patients, staff and community.
The APM is also your opportunity to discover how we’re building health services for the future as part of the exciting Nepean Hospital Redevelopment.
“Exciting times lie ahead for Nepean Hospital. With the recent construction of the crane everything is now moving much more rapidly. The new tower will allow us to continue to deliver the highest quality care well into the future and we can’t wait to show you more,” says Mr Williams.
