Peninsula Health is the metropolitan public health service for Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. We provide patient care at both Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals. We also offer extensive medical services through the Mornington Peninsula including acute medical, paediatric, surgical and maternity care, critical care, mental health services, aged care, rehabilitation, palliative care, residential care, community health, health education and promotion, outpatient services, aged care and assessment, investigative and medical support services, allied health, and clinical training.

Peninsula Health consists of 15 sites, employs over 5,000 people and is supported by more than 800 volunteers and auxiliary members. Peninsula Health doesn't have a volunteer craft group (we’d love to though!) but we do receive occasional craft donations. We always appreciate donation of knitted or crocheted beanies and scarves for our cancer and aged care patients, blankets and beanies for our special care paediatric nursery (such tiny things!),  Calico dolls for paediatric patients, Trauma Teddies for patients admitted to our Emergency Department and Crochet blankets for Palliative Care. For details on how to make trauma teddies, contact Peninsula Health’s ACE volunteer coordinator Jenni O’Sullivan on 0448 598 438 and you can view the free knitting pattern HERE. Please be mindful sick patients often have sensitive skin so donations need to be made out of material that is soft, warm and not itchy. For more information about Peninsula Health visit our website:
