Welcome to Cardiac Challenge 2013
Fundraising from this event helps grow the services of the Cardiology Department at Cairns Base Hospital over-and-above Queensland Health’s expenditure to ensure availability of superior cardiac services in the Far North.
Over the five year history of this event, we have raised over $1 million!! Cardiac facilities are improving and have expanded to include a dedicated Cardiac Cath Lab allowing angioplasty procedures to be performed in Cairns rather patients having to travel away. There is also now an additional Cardiologist, as well as a Paediatric Cardiologist caring for children with heart conditions.
