Nepean Cancer Care Centre Courtyard

The NCCC in Penrith recently completed renovation of their courtyard area, funded by Dry July 2011. The outdoor area is a place for cancer patients and their families to get some fresh air away from the busy waiting area.

Complete with plenty of seating, a bubbling fountain, and calming vegetation it is a space in which patients can relax peacefully. Prior to refurbishment patients were not able to access this space.

Quiet Room at Nepean Hospital

Nepean Hospital used funds from Dry July 2011 to refurbish a quiet room in the palliative care ward. Families and patients have access to this room to visit in a more ‘home-like’ environment.
