The Common Good Au together with Hospitals United for Sick Kids (HUSK) hosted a national fundraising launch at Caboolture Hospital during the week.

This HUSK campaign helps to fund new equipment and patient care initiatives. Here, the funds have been used for several items, such as virtual reality goggles, and more recently contributed to the redeveloped children’s ward including a new kids' retreat area.

HUSK gifted 15 scrubs to Caboolture Hospital, which feature their new mascot character called ‘Blip’, which paediatric ward staff Maria, Leeta and Brie today were more than happy to sport.

#ShoutoutSaturday to everyone involved in making the Caboolture Hospital kids happy. 😃

Caboolture Hospital staff Tracy and Janita are excited about a new Torres Strait Islands map on display, making patients feel safe and welcome when they arrive at hospital.

For Tracy, who is both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, the addition of the Torres Strait Islands map alongside the existing Aboriginal map signifies a way forward for two different cultures.

"My Mum is Aboriginal and my Dad is from Torres Strait, and I grew up in North Queensland in the Cairns surrounding area as well as spending some of my childhood on Thursday Island," Tracy said.

"For me, this is about having the identification of two different cultures which ultimately gives better health outcomes." 🌏
