SleepMaker is delighted to announce a new three-year community partnership with the well- loved Australian brand, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS), to support its vital emergency and primary healthcare services to those in remote and rural areas of the country.
SleepMaker’s contribution to the RFDS – a health charity that has been operating for more than 90 years – will help make a real difference for people who are living, working, and travelling in rural and remote Australia.
SleepMaker General Manager Anton McKernan said the company is immensely proud to partner with the RFDS which has more than 1,000 Australian patient contacts every day.
“Though the RFDS is traditionally known for emergency medical retrievals when someone needs to be gotten urgently to hospital, their services also include primary health services, telehealth, dental and mental health services.
“We at Sleepmaker, as an Australian business whose products are designed to deliver the health benefits of a good night’s sleep, are pleased to partner with the RFDS and have an opportunity to help bring good health to Australians living across the RFDS national service footprint.”
Frank Quinlan, the Federation Executive Director of the RFDS of Australia said that when it comes to good health, there is nothing more basic than a good night’s sleep.
“The science today clearly shows that sleep is an essential function that allows your body and mind to recharge and helps the body remain healthy and stave off disease.” Frank said.
“Without enough good sleep, the brain cannot function – so we are excited to have the support of SleepMaker over the next three years as a national community partner, working together to improve the health of Australians.”
In recognition of this new partnership, SleepMaker is launching a new range of mattresses that is inspired by the RFDS who makes healthcare accessible to all Australians.
This community partnership enables Sleepmaker to directly contribute to improving health outcomes for Australians who live beyond mainstream health services,” Mr McKernan said.
