Leaving a bequest to Epworth is one of the most powerful choices a person can make in their lifetime.

By making this one powerful choice, you can literally help thousands of future Epworth patients, and create a lasting legacy of care and compassion in your name for years to come.

For Diane Stenhouse, providing the best care to patients is something that deeply resonated with her. She dreamt about being a dentist since she was a young girl, giving her dolls fillings during play time. She turned this dream into reality as a dentist at the Royal Dental Hospital and in Puckapunyal caring for service men and women.

Diane decided to leave a bequest to Epworth in her Will, continuing her family’s legacy of care. Both of Diane’s parents received medical care at Epworth and subsequently became donors to the hospital. Diane was also treated at Epworth in her later years.

Diane left her entire estate to Epworth.

Diane’s gift has been used to establish the Diane Stenhouse Clinical Skills Training Fund for nursing staff to support ongoing education and training at Epworth.

Through the Clinical Skills Training Fund, our nursing staff will have ongoing access to:

  • Expand their skills into new specialisations, for example, a specific training course for a theatre nurse to learn skills to support minimally invasive technology such as robotic surgery
  • Education to obtain a higher degree such as Masters of Nursing
  • Dedicated skills training to ensure our nurses keep up with the latest in medical innovation

Epworth knows that to be the best hospital, we need to have the most highly-trained staff who can provide the very best care to our patients. The legacy of Diane Stenhouse will allow us to continue this.

If you, like Diane, are interested in giving or making a gift via your estate please call Vanessa Dannock on 03 9426 6572, 0408 122 599 or email [email protected] for a confidential discussion.

By leaving a bequest to Epworth Medical Foundation in your Will, you help us plan for the future with confidence, ensuring we can provide the very best care for our patients for generations to come.
