West Coast Eagles visit brings a smile to patients
Feb 20, 2019
Patients both young and old were thrilled by a visit from the West Coast Eagles on 20 February.
The visit was part of the team’s community engagement program, with players spending an hour visiting the hospital’s private maternity ward, coronary care and intensive care units, the Telethon Children’s Ward and private orthopaedics ward.
The youngest patient they visited was a yet-to-be-named baby who was less than 24-hours old and the oldest a 94-year-old Eagles fan.
Several of the players spent time on the Telethon Children’s Ward where they brightened the days of some of our unwell kids, much to the delight of parents.
