GIO is Canberra’s locally based MAI Insurer with a dedicated team of Claims Advisors assisting customers to get back to life and work after a motor vehicle accident.
GIO is a proud partner of the Canberra Hospital Foundation, and their contributions seek to support Canberra’s local hospitals with rehabilitation equipment.
Over the last three years, GIO has run a number of campaigns, including the Road to Recovery campaign which saw a $5 donation made to the Foundation with every MAI policy purchased. These donations have allowed the purchase of an extensive list of items which enhance care and aid in healing and recovery of trauma patients in the ACT and surrounding region.
Some of the items purchased by GIO’s donations include:
- Advanced Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) equipment which is used in the University of Canberra Hospital (UCH) rehabilitation facilities to complement physiotherapy techniques, often assisting with movements in muscles that have become weak
- Hydrotherapy equipment for the hydrotherapy pool at UCH
- The large glass artwork, Traversing the interior, by Holly Grace, supporting the Arts in Health program and magnificently displayed in the main foyer of UCH
The Canberra Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with GIO and on behalf of all patients and healthcare workers affected by rehabilitation services, we thank them for their ongoing support and commitment to healing and recovery. We look forward to continue working together with GIO now and in the future.
New program supports mental wellbeing for rehabilitation patients during COVID19
The University of Canberra Hospital’s Specialist Centre for Rehabilitation, Recovery and Research will launch a new program focused on patient mental wellbeing, while making use of innovative rehabilitation equipment.
Canberra Hospital Foundation funded the program and the provision of new equipment using donations from the GIO Road to Recovery CTP campaign.
