Face painting, food stalls, hospital tours and Flamenco and Ethiopian dancing on show as Canterbury Hospital opens its doors to the community.
Face painting, food stalls, hospital tours and Flamenco and Ethiopian dancing are just some of the attractions as Canterbury Hospital opens its doors to the community on Saturday 24 November, 2018.
The Canterbury Hospital open day will give visitors a chance to meet our clinicians.
“We welcome the chance to give everyone a behind the scenes look at a hospital the community can be proud of,” Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive Dr Teresa Anderson AM said.
“Feel free to ask questions, quiz our experts about everything from healthy eating and exercise to the range of services we offer at the hospital.”
Navigating through our various systems can be challenging, so a special invitation is extended to all of the people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds who call the Canterbury area home.
Canterbury Hospital is an acute general hospital, which has been providing high-quality health care to the community since 1929. The campus features a community health centre, Tresillian Family Care Centre and Drug Health clinic, as well as a specialised After Hours General Practice service.
Our community is rich in cultural and social diversity, with 65 per cent of the 220,000-strong population speaking a language other than English at home.
The open day runs from 10am to 2pm.
Hospital tours will be conducted in five languages:
Flamenco dance performances will take place at 11am and 12pm.
Ethiopian dance performances will take place at 11.30am and 12.30pm.
