Special Care Nursery
The special care nursery sees one-third of the babies born.
Vital Equipment Purchases
The Our Kids organisation has purchased more than 1.8 million dollars of vital equipment.
$25,000 worth of equipment is purchased biennially
Our Kids, more formally known as the Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund, was founded in 2001 by Dr Chris Ingall.
Our Kids aims to improve the health services for children in the Northern Rivers area by purchasing paediatric equipment for the Lismore Base Hospital and the surrounding Northern Rivers hospitals, including Lismore, Tweed and Grafton hospitals.
Through the generosity of our community, Our Kids has purchased $2 million+ worth of paediatric equipment for our local hospitals.
This equipment benefits our community by helping kids stay local when needing medical care.
Thank you for helping us help our kids!
Meet some of Our Kids
Mitchell is a beautiful boy who needs to wear a brace to keep his spine straight. He is a most affectionate young man and he particularly loves Sister Leaver, never letting her out of his sight when he is in Children's Ward.
Xander has diabetes, is doing well on insulin and is very brave.
Tarli was born 2 and a half months early and spent her early life in the special care nursery. She has grown and developed perfectly well and is as smart as a whip.
