Our Community Cares

April 3, 2020

With Western Health staff so focused on preparations for the expected spread of COVID-19, this is a lovely reminder that the community appreciates our efforts.
Footscray Hospital staff received a surprise in the mail during week – this beautiful letter and accompanying drawings.


We’re in West Footscray, so Footscray Hospital is our local hospital.

We’ve been lucky so far, no-one near us has caught COVID-19, but the kids can’t help pick up on the constant news and concern.

The kids were thinking about Footscray hospital because we pass it often, but they’re also conscious of all of the people working in all hospitals, including in Brazil where their relatives are.

I hope you all get the support and recognition you deserve.
