Established in 1997 by the Sunshine Coast community, we have been servicing people within the greater Sunshine Coast region to live well with cancer for over 21 years.
Bloomhill prides itself on its evidence-based, nurse-led model of care supported by strong relationships with primary health care providers and local hospitals. In addition to our nurse-led care, we offer a broad range of complementary therapies and allied health services which assist and support individuals, their families and their carers during what can be a very challenging and life-changing experience.
All of our services are delivered by qualified nurses, therapists and allied health professionals, the cost of which is subsidised or sponsored by Bloomhill. This is made possible through the proceeds of our twelve Op Shops, grants, fundraising activities, community and corporate support, and individual philanthropy. Our 450+ volunteers are the life blood of all our business fuelled by purpose, passion and pride to be the ‘village’ needed to support our community.
Together we all play an essential role in breaking down barriers to accessing essential treatment and support, improving treatment compliance and ultimately improve cancer health outcomes for the Sunshine Coast community.
In the past 8 years Bloomhill has welcomed 7,120 clients at the Centre, which includes patients, carers, children and bereaved family and friends. The growth in demand for our services has increased markedly in recent years. In the 2018-2019 financial year alone, Bloomhill actively supported 1224 clients – providing over 11,112 occasions of nursing and allied health care and attendances at our group lifestyle and wellness activities.
With over 22 fully trained nursing, allied health staff and contractors, Bloomhill has also been working hard to establish strong partnerships with key organisations and networks aligned with our mission, including: National Alliance for Cancer Wellness, Queensland Cancer Council, Leukaemia Foundation, Sunshine Coast University Hospital, Sunshine Coast University, Canteen, PHN Integrated Care Alliance Group, USE External Advisory Committee – Counselling
