Berkeley Vale Private steps up to help manage the Central Coast’s COVID response
Feb 09, 2022
Berkeley Vale Private Hospital wants to assure the Central Coast community it remains committed to assisting the public health sector with managing the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Berkeley Vale Private Hospital CEO, Lorrie Mohsen, said since the start of the pandemic, but particularly during the recent Omicron wave, the hospital has been working with the state government and the Central Coast Local Health District by providing private beds for some public patients.
“Berkeley Vale Private Hospital has been providing private beds, skilled workforce and other resources to treat some public patients from Gosford and Wyong Public Hospitals, so they had greater capacity to care for the surge in COVID patients,” Ms Mohsen said.
"This includes medical and rehabilitation patients, as well as patients awaiting residential placement.
"We have also assisted with the state’s vaccination program, providing staff to vaccination hubs around the district and as far as far western NSW.
“I’d like to thank my team members for their ongoing commitment to assisting the Central Coast Community."
Patients, including Karen Stevens (pictured with Prue Eakin, Berkeley Vale Private Hospital Patient Flow Manager), have also thanked the hospital and staff for the welcome, with Karen commenting she particularly enjoying the food provided at Berkeley Vale.
