The Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation’s commercial operations play an integral role in improving health care in the region.
The hospital carpark, dcafe, Sea Breeze Café, vending machines, ATM’s and patient interactive system all contribute to the Foundation’s bottom line.
Because of these commercial enterprises, all administrative costs are completely covered which means every cent donated goes to its intended cause, Foundation CEO Tony Franz said.
The Sea Breeze Café provides quality food and drinks, as well as a full range of gifts and toiletry items for patients, staff and visitors to the hospital.
Sea Breeze Café is on the ground floor of Block B, in a relaxed location overlooking the Cairns Esplanade. It has indoor and outdoor dining, and a view to rival any in Cairns.
The dcafe, on the ground floor of Block D at the northern end of Cairns Hospital, offers a wide range of nutritious food and drinks in a relaxed and modern setting.
Staff prepare a full selection of hot meals, wraps, rolls, salads, coffee, smoothies, juices and tea.
The Cairns Hospital car park, Block E, on the corner of Grove and Digger streets, provides a crucial service for hospital staff and the public. The provision of 667 undercover parking spaces provides a secure and comfortable environment and meets the large demand. The entry fee is a small investment for the security and ease of parking on site at the hospital. An all-weather sky bridge over Lake St, on level 2, allows easy access to Block D and the rest of the hospital.
The Foundation co-ordinates and manages a variety of vending services throughout the hospital that include fresh bean to cup coffee/tea machines as well as drink and snack machines. ATM’s are in the Block B information area and the Sea Breeze Café for the convenience of staff, patients and visitors to Cairns Hospital.
