Mary, 73, an elderly living by herself in a one-room flat. She was admitted to St Luke’s Hospital this year because a bad fall in her bathroom broke her elbow. To make things worse, her money, rice cooker and personal belongings had been stolen from her already bare flat.
“I cried. I didn’t know what to do. I had no more money. How do I pay my hospital bill?”
St Luke’s Hospital’s medical social worker helped her apply for Medifund to pay for her hospital bills. On her follow-up medical appointments, we paid for her escort service, ambulance service and a water heater using the hospital’s Patient Welfare Fund.
With timely healthcare and financial assistance, Mary has returned home and is recovering well.
St Luke’s Hospital helps over 2,000 patients and their families each year. The care that they receive makes the difference between a cycle of struggle and a future of hope. Through your contribution, you enable the less fortunate to forge on – over 90% of patients at SLH are highly subsidised. This year we need to raise over $4 million to further subsidise the needy.
