When Louise felt a strong ache in her arm at work one day, common sense told her to go straight to The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s Emergency Department.
“I explained why I was there and doctors acted immediately. The next thing I knew I was getting a stent inserted. I was told I’d had a heart attack.” said Louise.
Cardiovascular disease currently affects one in six Australians and is the main cause of hospitalisations in Victoria. Last year, The Royal Melbourne Hospital cared for more than 2,400 patients.
From providing world-class care to patients to leading innovative research, The Royal Melbourne Hospital makes
a difference in people’s lives.
Louise is grateful for the wonderful care she received at The Royal Melbourne Hospital:
“I drive past the hospital regularly and didn’t even think that one day I would need their help. But now, I know each person who cared for me by name and there is no praise high enough for them. They saved me.”
