Chair Replacement Project –  our infection control team are on a mission to make the hospital a safer place, so we are replacing ALL our fabric chairs with vinyl chairs – ensuring that our space can be sanitised easily keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe. We have had several donations enabling us to purchase 44 of the chairs we require, but we still have 97 chairs to go at $345 each. Please consider donating the money for a chair or two so we can complete this project quickly.


Monitor - the Waiareka Lions Club donated $2000 towards an vitals monitor machine which will be located in the infusion & chemotherapy clinic for their specific use. The full cost is $7036. Please consider donating towards this significant item so we can get it in place before this Christmas.

If you would like to purchase any of our wishlist items, please email us at donations@southerndhb.govt.nz  or call Katie on (03) 433 0290 Extn 9043.
