A message for Eastern Health Foundation donors and supporters.
Thank you for your kindness and ongoing support for patients and their loved ones at Eastern Health.
YOU are a wonderful partner in healthcare for people throughout your community.
Your doctors, nurses and medical care teams are so grateful for your amazing support over the past few years.
With your help and that of other kind-hearted donors like you, more patients now have access to additional lifesaving medical equipment and innovative programs and services.
You’re helping to provide world-class medical care, right here in your local community.
We are pleased to share with you the achievements and major advancements in patient care, research and medical equipment over the past decade that you have made possible.
Your gifts make a difference in the lives of local people every day,and help improve healthcare in Melbourne’s east and beyond.
Without supporters like you, researchers at Eastern Health wouldn’t be able to discover new treatments and improve care. And staff would not have the opportunity to develop their skills through formal education as provided by donor funded scholarships.
Without you, additional state-of-the-art equipment wouldn’t be available for our medical teams to diagnose, treat, and provide great care to the patients admitted to our hospitals every day.
$28million+ has been generously donated between 2011 and 2021, helping Eastern Health to deliver ‘great care, everywhere, every time’.
This is the result of the extraordinary generosity and foresight of individuals, community groups, trusts and foundations, corporate sponsors and bequestors who care deeply about public healthcare.
From 2011-2021, your support has made possible:
- 131 research grants enabling our staff to investigate innovative healthcare pathways that improve outcomes for our patients.
- 100 staff development scholarships enabling our health workers to become leaders in their fields through postgraduate education.
- More than 200 pieces of medical equipment across our sites to stay at the cutting-edge of medicine and enhance the delivery of patient care.
- Flagship programs that have transformed the way we deliver healthcare.
