Current Public Hospital Projects
With your support we can continue to fund hospital projects providing new and upgraded public hospital services and equipment dedicated in memory of police who had died whilst serving and protecting our community. All donations over $2 are tax deductible
In 2018-19, we provided over $1 million to public hospital projects. This can only be achieved with your support.
The funding in the past year included our largest single community project we have funded. The new Critical Circulatory Support Service at Eastern Health’s Box Hill Hospital in honour of all Victoria Police Officers who have died in the line of duty. This new service is led by Eastern Health’s Cardiology and Intensive Care Unit teams. The funding delivered life saving equipment and a training centre to enable Eastern Health to provide artificial heart-lung support to critically ill patients.
This year, we have committed to fund a significant upgrade of the women and children’s precinct at the Angliss Hospital, located in Ferntree Gully. This would include enhancing the delivery suites, post-natal and antenatal areas, to make them even more welcoming for families and their newborn babies. Since its inauguration in 1939, more than 100,000 babies were born at the Angliss, with at least 2,000 births expected this year.
Your support will also help our public hospital projects at Gippsland, Heathcote, Bendigo and Geelong.
