Mark Terry and Neil Lucas from St John of God Foundation were really passionate talking about the 150 million project which include the new hospital with the new comprehensive Cancer and Cardiac Centre and the redevelopment of the Gibb Street Campus.
The new hospital will include 210 beds, 6 theatres, two cardiac/vascular catheter laboratory, six birthing suits and also stablishing and expanding the Cancer Centre.
The specialised Cancer Centre includes 20 chair chemotherapy unit, 5 consulting suits for specialist oncologists and haematologists, radiology, compounding pharmacy and radiotherapy which means that everything is within the one centre and close by patients.
St John of God Berwick hospital has been provided community care for over 75 years. It was originally known as “Berwick and District Bush Nursing Hospital”. It will be able to provide service closer to home to Casey and Cardinia population expanded rapidly and also the surrounding areas such as Baw Baw and Gippsland. 
The Gibb Street Campus will be redeveloped to deliver a new range of services including rehabilitation services.
One of the key points of SJOG is provided “Patient Comfort” with the highest standards of care and the top quality medical services providers.
SJOG health care board management has decided to initiate a fundraising campaign to raise $ 5 million over 4 years to convert this vision into reality will require commitment, time, energy and of course money.
You can support this project with top quality medical services. Neil Lucas pointed out “Every penny is going to the facilities in Berwick” All your donations will be tax-deductible and will be acknowledge by SJOG foundation. Pledge over 4 years and bequest are welcomed too.
