StayWell Hospitality Group Sponsorships
2016 Tour de Transplant
StayWell Hospitality Group, and the Park Regis Brand, are delighted to further partner with HLTTV as a sponsor of HLTTV’s 2016 Tour de Transplant. The Tour is a 600km fundraising bike ride from Warrnambool to Melbourne, 2-6 March 2016, led by cycling legend Phil Anderson. All funds raised support HLTTV’s Second Chance Accommodation Program, providing a home away from home for heart and lung transplant patients. Visit www.tourdetransplant.org.au for more information.”
The Heart and Lung Transplant Trust (Victoria) accommodation program strives to provide affordable accommodation for heart and lung transplant recipients and their carers. Park Regis Griffin Suites provides support to the program to ensure transplant patients and their families are able to stay in comfort and close to the hospitals during the ongoing treatment process.
The Alfred Hospital, Melbourne is the only centre for lung and heart transplants for all patients from Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, southern NSW and the Northern Territory. It is also the national centre for paediatric lung transplants.
After receiving a transplanted heart, lung or lungs, the patient and their carer are required to attend the hospital for a compulsory 3 month rehabilitation and medical monitoring for 3-5 days a week. For patients who are from country Victoria or interstate, this is not possible without the Second Chance Accommodation Program between HLTTV and Park Regis Griffin Suites, providing a home away from home.
