Optus has entered into a long-term partnership with The Royal Melbourne Hospital, committing close to $1 million across five years in support of patient care.
An amount of $350,000 has been committed to support a purpose built rooftop garden on Level 7 for cancer patients who are being treated within our Haematology Ward. When completed, the garden will provide relaxation and respite for these patients and their families in their greatest time of need. Featuring a modern design, the main outdoor garden space incorporates timber seating and lighting throughout, plus welcoming artificial gardens and plants to accommodate patients with compromised immune systems.
The remaining funds will support varied project across The Royal Melbourne Hospital. We are truly thankful to Optus for their significant support whilst recognising the world-class care and services the Royal Melbourne provides to its patients and the greater community.
