Rally Australia sponsor Coates Hire and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation are donating a vital signs monitor and an Oximax handheld pulse oximeter to the Coffs Harbour Health Campus Pediatric & Adolescent Unit. 

The donation worth almost $5000 will significantly enhance children’s lives in the Coffs Harbour region.

Equipment hire specialist Coates Hire CEO Leigh Ainsworth, who grew up in Sawtell and attended school in Coffs Harbour, is delighted to provide this vital contribution to the area. Coates Hire proudly supports the work done by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, which makes a big difference to the lives of children and their families across Australia.

Coates Hire is also proud to be the naming rights sponsor of the Coates Hire Rally Australia in Coffs Harbour. The company also thanked the Humpty Dumpty Foundation for the opportunity to support the Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

Coates Hire has been an extremely valued supporter of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation for over 10 years, helping the organisation continue to deliver essential pieces of equipment to hospitals and health services across Australia.

Coates Hire has previously donated several pieces of equipment to the Coffs Harbour Health Campus including an infant resuscitation cot valued at $22,500, says Executive Chairman and Founder of Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Paul Francis.

The vital signs monitor with stand measures a child’s vital signs such as temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation levels, and ensures medical staff can quickly and effectively respond to changes in a sick child.

The Oximax handheld pulse oximeter measures the oxygen levels in a child’s body providing the child with the close monitoring required when first admitted to hospital. Oxygen levels need to be monitored to maintain the respiratory and heart rate of a child.
