Dandenong Hospital Parent Room Redevelopment

We are raising funds to redevelop the Dandenong Hospital Parent Room to provide a welcome and comfortable learning environment for new parents.

Many of our patients are only in hospital for a short time before returning home. This new space will allow parents to learn vital skills such as breast feeding with the support of our staff and other mothers. 

Our goal is to transform the space from a traditional clinical environment to one that is more like home. To achieve this we needed to replace furniture which has been kindly donated by Fantastic Furniture Dandenong, flooring donated by Armstrong Flooring, blinds by Clark Blinds, cabinetry by Sabrina Shop Fitting and paint by PPG. 

With the support the Humpty Dumpty Foundation the room will also include a Cosy Cabinet. The cosy cabinet helps to maintain a baby’s vital signs and stabilise their condition until they can be transferred to a neonatal unit.

Our goal now is to raise $20,000 for the engineering and infrastructure costs. This includes relocating vital gas lines and completing electrical and plumbing works. 

We welcome your support to complete this important project.
