Isaac council injects $10,000 in health funding

Isaac Regional Council is set to inject $10,000 in funding to be shared across Isaac hospitals and health facilities in Dysart, Clermont and Moranbah.

The pledge is part of the Mackay Hospital Foundation Giving Day for much needed funds for equipment and projects and volunteers who had set up shop at Moranbah Town Square yesterday.

Isaac Mayor Anne Baker said Council was continuing to advocate for critical health services in the Isaac region.

“We are providing support to events such as these to raise awareness and funds for critical projects and equipment that will improve health outcomes for patients in the region,” Mayor Baker said.

“Giving Day was a 24-hour fundraising challenge that rallies our local community to support hospitals across Mackay Hospital and Health Service – we’re so thankful to everyone who made a donation and chose an Isaac region-based hospital and health facility.”

The foundation is a dedicated fundraising organisation for the Mackay Hospital and Health Service region incorporating hospitals and health facilities in Bowen, Collinsville, Proserpine, Mackay, Sarina, Moranbah, Dysart and Clermont.

Council is classified as a match donor for the day which means that depending on the amount of matched funds received by the foundation, the donations from the community and organisations on Giving Day may be matched two, three or four-fold.

The funding is also utilised to support projects and equipment that will improve the health outcomes for patients with the region and providing comfort and convenience for patients’ hospital stays in the Mackay, Whitsunday and Isaac regions, the Mayor said.
