Northern Health Foundation has two major funding projects for medical Equipment at Northern Hospital Epping.

Both will broaden our service delivery for Respiratory Medicine and Gastroenterology Services for patients here in the North.


These important projects are outlined below:

Endobronchial Ultrasound Service or EBUS   –  $425,000

EBUS will allow us to diagnose and stage suspected lung cancer – currently our patients in the North need to be referred to other health services for these tests which causes significant delays in being able to diagnose lung cancer and commencing treatment and care of our patients.

Funding this equipment will greatly improve our patient care and ensure our patients have access to these tests at their local health service – the same as every other Victorian.

Intestinal Ultrasound   –  $150,000

An Intestinal Ultrasound Unit for our Gastroenterology Service will support diagnosis and treatment of a range of Gut Diseases including Crohn’s and Colitis.  Our patients in the North need to be referred to other health services for tests causing significant delays in commencing treatment and care.

Funding this equipment will greatly improve our patient care and ensure our patients have access to these tests at their local health service – the same as every other Victorian.
