Midland Hospital to host patient experience expo

The public are invited to St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals’ inaugural Patient Experience Expo on May 1 from 10am to 3pm, which will showcase the services it provides to the community.

St John of God Midland Public Hospital CEO Michael Hogan said the event is being held during Patient Experience Week to provide the opportunity for our caregivers to engage with consumers about our patient-focussed care and to increase health literacy in the community.

“As part of this year’s theme “We’re Here For You”, we will be asking patients and visitors to write their experience and feedback about the hospital on cardboard bricks, which will be used to create a consumer feedback wall,” Mr Hogan said.

“We are looking forward to sharing what we hope will become an annual event with the local community.”

More than 22 stalls will be on display in the main foyer to provide the community with information on a range of the services, including maternity, diabetes, Aboriginal health, mental health, drug and alcohol, volunteer, emergency, medical and surgical, private hospital, occupational therapy, social work, dietetics, speech pathology, home services and pastoral care.

Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service will be providing information for visitors and health checks, such as blood pressure test.

Horizon House and Raphael Services will provide information on their services, which provide stable accommodation for young people at risk of homelessness and support for new parents experiencing emotional challenges after the birth of their baby.

Food vans will be located in the front of the public hospital area and the caf and gift shop will be open.
