The aftermath of the 2013 floods resulted in a tumultuous and trying year for many in our community and as the year draws to a close we’re sure there are many who are looking forward to closing the page on 2013 and opening a new chapter in 2014! Like our whole community many within our own Friendlies family were touched, some more so than others, and have faced a tough year of recovery and rebuilding. Because of this we decided to start our Christmas celebrations early with a relaxing end of year BBQ held at Penny Lane gardens on Friday 8th November. A great night was shared by all and everyone looks forward to winding down into the Christmas season with their family and friends. A special congratulations to our Employee of the Year Elizabeth Silcox. From the entire team at the Friendlies, including the Board of Directors, Hospital, Afterhours, Pharmacy and Physiotherapy team members we would like to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and safe Christmas and most importantly peace and goodwill to all.

Have a Great Christmas! From The Friendlies

Cardiac Investigations Unit Celebrates 1st Birthday! By Ben World Clinical Nurse (CIU) This time last year we were writing about the first procedure performed in the newly opened Cardiac Investigations Unit (CIU), now the team have just celebrated the unit’s first birthday! Melbourne Cup day marks the anniversary of the opening of our CIU and since opening we have performed 432 cases over the past year. The very existence of the CIU has provided a much needed service to

the wide bay community allowing patients to have procedures such as diagnostic coronary angiograms, right heart studies, transoesphageal echocardiography and the insertion of permanent pacemakers and internal cardiac defibrillators performed close to home, without having to travel to Brisbane. This year has gone very quickly, however I can still remember our first CIU patient, who was very shocked

when she was gifted with flowers and heart friendly chocolates after her procedure. Since our first case we have helped another 431 people, but we still treat every patient as if they were the first. I am very proud to be part of the Friendlies team and especially part of the CIU team and wish to thank everyone that has been involved in making it a great year for us and our patients.

The Gift of Giving outweighs the gift of receiving

THE health of our community

2013 was a year of giving by so many, it is this spirit that keeps the community ticking and connected. The Friendlies are proud supporters and sponsors of many sporting clubs, community events and charities, we would love to support every single request that we receive but it is not always possible. By far our biggest sponsorship, on many levels is the Cane2Coral fun run held each year in August. This is a wonderful event that grows in strength each year, not only in numbers and community participation, but in the funds raised for so many wonderful local causes. This year $50,000 was raised from the event and gratefully the Friendlies Foundation were also recipients of some the funds raised. Did you know we are a not for profit organisation that also relies on donations, gifts and bequests? To help continue the delivery of state of the art healthcare services the announcement and formation of the Friendlies Foundation was made earlier this year. Our outstanding facility, technology and future growth will benefit from the establishment of the Friendlies Foundation and the awareness of our Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. If you would like to make a donation to the Friendlies Foundation or for further information please contact Executive Services at the Hospital.

Ben looks forward to treating you when you next need Physiotherapy treatment.
