St John of God Geelong Hospital Golf Day

On Thursday 10 November, St John of God Geelong Hospital Chief Executive Officer Stephen Roberts had the pleasure of hosting a Golf Day fundraiser, bringing together supporters, caregivers, and members of the Geelong community. 

The Golf Day was proudly presented by Lake Imaging and held at the scenic 13th Beach Golf Links. The event raised over $52,000, with all funds raised to be invested back into the community through the redevelopment of the St John of God Geelong Hospital Maternity Unit. 

Guests enjoyed glimpses of sunshine, and played 18 holes on the iconic course followed by refreshments and lunch, and had the opportunity to bid on some fantastic prizes at a live fundraising auction. 

St John of God Foundation Chief Executive Officer Bianca Pietralla, said the funds raised will ensure that the Hospital’s exceptional level of care can continue to be matched by equally exceptional facilities. 

“We are so grateful to the event sponsors, donors and guests for their attendance and support for this special project,” she said. 

St John of God Geelong Hospital has been a leading provider of maternity services in the Greater Geelong region for over 40 years, with experienced, dedicated midwives and obstetricians who have delivered babies for generations of local families. 

As the Greater Geelong region - which is now home to over 270,000 people – continues to grow, it is important to ensure local families can access exceptional, compassionate maternity care now and into the future. St John of God Geelong Hospital has committed to the redevelopment of the Hospital’s Maternity Unit, to ensure Geelong families can access the very best care and facilities, close to home.  

The St John of God Geelong Hospital maternity redevelopment is an investment in the health and wellbeing of new babies and their parents, and in the future of Geelong.

The St John of God Foundation team would be delighted to talk to you about how gifts of all sizes can help bring this project to life and support families in the Geelong community.
