Partners in Care Together Board members Peta Jamieson and Trish Mears, Partners in Care Together Manager Brant Duff, Member for Bundaberg Tom Smith, Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service Acting Executive Director Clarissa Schmierer and Bundaberg SSS Strawberries representative.

The team at Bundaberg Health Services Foundation is looking forward to a bright future with a new name, Partners in Care Together.

Acting Chair of the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation, Cathie Parker, said the new name would encompass the Foundation’s services and footprint.

“The Board is very excited to be launching a new name for the Foundation,” she said.

“The name and logo will represent our values and our aspirations into the future.” Cathie said.

“We believe Partners in Care Together will better reflect not only our continued commitment to Bundaberg Hospital, but also our expanded service to support other hospitals within the Wide Bay Hospital area.”

Currently the Foundation provides fundraising support for non-funded equipment, volunteer
services, scholarships, and patient accommodation at Bundaberg Hospital.

The Foundation launched the new name Partners in Care Together last week
alongside the arrival of a new community car, which was generously funded through the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Tom Smith, Member for Bundaberg said community partnerships were at the heart of regional health care.

“That is why I am so glad to see the new name of the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation reflect that very principle,” he said.

“Partners in Care Together resonates with the outstanding legacy created towards strengthening regional health services formed by the partnership of the Foundation's hard-working team and the world class health staff at the Bundaberg Hospital.”

Foundation Manager Brant Duff said the car would provide plenty of support to the community.

“The new car will help us to continue providing a quality service to our patients travelling to cancer and renal care appointments,” he said.

“With added safety features and better accessibility, the new car will help to improve patient comfort.”

Looking to the future, there are plans for a Giving Day for each of Bundaberg and Hervey Bay Hospitals in June 2023 with the Foundation seeking Corporate Support.
