For over 12 years, Calvary Mater Newcastle has been privileged to be a Dry July beneficiary. Over this time we have been fortunate to have had a vast array of projects and equipment funded that have made a huge difference to the experience of our cancer patients and their families when they are being treated at the hospital.
By raising funds for the hospital through Dry July, you will be funding projects for our oncology services that directly benefit and assist in the comfort and care of our patients and their families.
This year we are hoping to purchase some of the following equipment: new oncology loan pool equipment, 2 low profile beds for Ward 5B (Oncology), CADD pumps for chemotherapy, scarves/turbans and post-operative bras for oncology patients, 10 vital sign monitors for single rooms in Ward 5C (Haematology), and a mural for a patient waiting area in Radiation Oncology.
Calvary Mater Newcastle is the major cancer care centre for the Hunter New England Local Health District, delivering more than 396,000 occasions of outpatient services and in excess of 17,000 inpatient treatments per year.
We provide a comprehensive range of cancer services, diagnosis and treatment including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, bone marrow transplants and surgery.
As the region’s tertiary referral cancer hospital, we treat a lot of patients who travel a great distance to have their treatment. Comfortable and convenient accommodation is available onsite for rural and remote patients receiving treatment as an outpatient at the hospital.
Calvary Mater Newcastle is also home to our world renowned research facility and is the main centre for cancer clinical trials in the region.
Thank you for choosing to support Calvary Mater Newcastle.
