Lions Club of West Lakes - Seaton

A sincere thank you to the Lions Club of West Lakes - Seaton for their tireless efforts in raising funds and donation for the purchase of a Bariatric Lifter for Western Hospital. With increased Bariatric Surgery since the opening of the Intensive Care Unit at the Hospital, there was a need for additional specialised equipment. The Bariatric Lifter is a sophisticated device which allows a single nurse to carry out patient transfers ensuring comfort, without stress or strain and with no manual lifting risks. Western Hospital greatly appreciates the Lions Club for their ongoing support.

New Intensive Care Unit!

The Board of Directors and Management at Western Hospital are very pleased to report that the new Intensive Care Unit at Western Hospital has been extensively utilised and has attracted more surgeons performing major surgical procedures. A staff Medical Officer (SMO) supported by an Intensivist is available 24 hours per day / 7 days a week to support the surgical / medical inpatients. Extended Pathology and Radiology services are available to support the Intensive Care Unit. The ICU and medical backup ensure that those patients considered higher acuity (higher risk) are now able to be managed at Western.
