Current Equipment Needs

"We no longer worry about how we will have the correct equipment available each day for our many patients that require it. You have no idea the impact you have had and the relief you have provided to our service with your generous contribution."

Katie Fidler - Nurse Manager


Charles' generous contribution has improved the diagnosis and treatment for cardiac patients.

Charles’ generous donation enabled Cabrini to purchase one TOE ultrasound and our donor community came together to raise enough to purchase a second machine.

Loyal Cabrini Foundation supporter Charles Tegner, generously supported our fundraising appeal for the purchase of Transoesophageal Echocardiogram (TOE) probes.

The impact for patients

  • These probes ensure our cardiologists are using the best technology available to diagnose and treat heart conditions and disease.
  • The new TOE probes have helped stop delays in care. They are used more than 10 times each day for a wide range of cardiac procedures in both the operating theatres and cardiac catheter labs, as well as for heart function testing during diagnosis of cardiac disease.
  • The new probes provide sharper and clearer images, which improves the efficiency and effectiveness during heart functionality assessments.

Without these probes our cardiac surgeons performing open heart surgery would be unable to examine heart functionality during the procedure. This results in fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and more lives saved.

On behalf of the doctors, nurses, patients, researchers, volunteers and staff, the Cabrini Foundation team sincerely thank Charles and everybody else who donated for their ongoing support of our work.
