Quilt donation brightens up neonatal unit

April 6, 2017

The Armadale Health Service (AHS) neonatal unit received a splash of colour recently, with 15 new quilts being donated to the unit.

AHS Neonates Clinical Nurse Helen Dawson said donations such as these always received a wonderful response from families in the unit, with the quilts ranging in an array of colour and detail.

“The donations help enormously and are a well appreciated gesture of support from the community.”

The neonatal unit receives many donations such as knitted hats, cardigans and quilts which play a pivotal role in families’ experiences.
