This commitment and donation could not be done with out the years of support from our customers and we thank you for making this achievable and we look forward to helping support and sponsor
Koala ward is a 30 bed unit that provides specialist care for patients with both cardiac and renal conditions. Patients of all ages ranging from newborns through to adolescents receive specialist cardiac treatments including cardiac surgery, medical therapies and electrophysiology. We also care for patients with a range of kidney problems managed both medically and surgically, including renal replacement therapies; haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation.
Koala Ward is supported by both cardiac and kidney specialists, trainee medical staff and specialist nursing staff. They are involved in all aspects of patient care from admission – right through until discharge and long term follow up in outpatient clinics. Particularly complex or long term patients are supported by nursing care managers to help assist and co-ordinate their care.
What makes us unique?
On Koala ward we are proud to be a National Funded Centre in a variety of areas including
- Paediatric Heart Transplantation
- Pulmonary Hypertension management
- Paediatric Ventricular Assist Devices (including both Berlin Heart and Heartware)
Patients admitted to Koala ward come from all over Victoria, Australia and Overseas.
