Hospital staff provide drought aid and firefighter support
Staff at a local hospital raised over $5000 for Coasties Drought Aid in the lead up to Christmas.
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital chief executive Ms Kathy Beverley said staff will continue to raise funds for drought aid and to support NSW firefighters throughout January.
"We have two staff members who have been fighting fires across the state since September - in Port Macquarie, the Mid North Coast, the Hunter, the Hawkesbury, the Central Coast and Tamworth as part of the volunteer fire service.
"The hospital has fully supported them with special paid leave and continues to provide free counselling services through the Employee Assistance Program for all staff.
"Thank you to both of these staff members who continue to balance work and community service commitments to help keep everyone safe.
"All funds raised by staff will be matched by the hospital for donations to these worthy causes," Ms Beverley said.
