(12/9/2013) RALLY Australia sponsor Coates Hire and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation donated a much-needed Vital Signs Monitor and a Oximax Handheld Pulse Oximeter valued at almost $5000 to the Coffs Harbour Health Campus Pediatric & Adolescent Unit today.
The presentation was attended by Australian WRC star Chris Atkinson, who is a Coates Hire ambassador and test driver for the Hyundai Motorsport team, which will join the championship next season.
Coates Hire CEO Leigh Ainsworth, who grew up in Sawtell and attended school in Coffs Harbour, said he was delighted to provide this vital contribution to the area.
“The Humpty Dumpty Foundation makes a big difference to the lives of children and their families across Australia and we are very proud to support the great work they do.
“Coates Hire is also proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the Coates Hire Rally Australia here in Coffs Harbour and we thank the local community for supporting such a great event. We also thank the Humpty Dumpty Foundation for the opportunity to support the Coffs Harbour Health Campus.”
The Vital Signs Monitor with Stand measures a child’s vital signs – temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation levels ‐ and ensures medical staff can quickly and effectively respond to changes in condition.
The Oximax Handheld Pulse Oximeter measures oxygen levels, providing the child with the close monitoring required when first admitted to hospital. Oxygen levels need to be monitored to maintain the respiratory and heart rate of a child.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is a children’s charity that continues to make a significant impact on the lives of sick children at hospitals and health service centres in every State of Australia.
