Alpine Health are the the lucky recipient of three neonatal resuscitation units for each of our Urgent Care facilities at each hospital. The near new second hand units are in top shape and are a significant upgrade on our previous units. The neonatal resuscitation units are used to ensure the safety and health of newborn babies.
Mandy Barter, Health Services Manager Myrtleford said “on behalf of Alpine Health, I would like to thank Michael Montgomery (Montgomery Biomedical) for sourcing the three neonatal resuscitation units. We are extremely grateful for the time and effort Michael has donated to this project.”
“We would also like to acknowledge the generous donation by Cooma Hospital and Health Service, and the members of the Society of Medical Biological Engineers (SMBE) of Australia in assisting Michael to source the replacement units” she said.
Mandy said “our maternity and newborn services team of midwives offer antenatal (before birth) and postnatal (after birth) in the Alpine Shire and we are also well prepared for fast unplanned births at each of our three Urgent Care sites in Bright, Myrtleford and Mt Beauty. “
In August, Alpine Health nursing staff, local GP’s and emergency services will participate in unplanned Emergency Birthing training facilitated by the Royal Women’s Hospital and will provide an opportunity for all health care staff to become familiar with the upgraded equipment.
