Barwon Health Foundation announces Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund.

Health and emergency workers are remarkable, resilient and committed people. At Barwon Health, we are lucky to have the very best.

As health services around the world face major challenges with the emergence of COVID-19 (coronavirus), your local health service is responding to these unprecedented times as this pandemic will impact our Greater Geelong community.

We are very fortunate to have a first class health service right here in Geelong and we can assure you that you are all in the very best hands.

Whilst our health workers are outstanding, they need our support.

The Barwon Health Foundation has announced a new Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund which will raise funds to support Barwon Health during the current health pandemic.

The Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund, with an initial goal of raising $2million, will be used to fund an increased capacity of beds and clinics, purchase vital medical equipment, co-ordinate volunteers, support our infectious diseases team and be ready to assist with high priority, fast-emerging initiatives that will help Barwon Health during this health crisis. Our research teams are on hand to do important diagnostic testing on cases and collaborative advice to world-wide research teams.

It is also important to remember that the effect of coronavirus will be no doubt be felt across our entire health service from emergency, oncology and cardiology to aged care, for a considerable period of time. 

The Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund will be there to support areas across Barwon Health needing immediate and future investment.

We need you, for when you need us. Please support the Barwon Health Foundation.

Please make a tax deductable donation to our Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund. Your support will make a difference to the people of Geelong.
