This year Westmead Hospital Foundation celebrates 30 years of fundraising for health care and research at Westmead Hospital.
In 1990, a small team of clinicians and researchers passionate about furthering their work in Western Sydney began the Foundation. Today, 30 years later, the professional fundraising team at the Foundation continue this work – advocating for Westmead’s world leading health care and research, and the impact it has in our community and globally.
Over this time Westmead Hospital Foundation’s core mission has remained unchanged - raising funds to support Westmead Hospital’s clinical services through state-of-the-art medical and surgical equipment, new technology, research and patient care.
Through the generous support of individuals, community and corporate donors the Foundation has continued to fund life-saving medical and surgical equipment, ground-breaking research and scholarships for further education of our clinicians for the people of Western Sydney and beyond.
In October 2020, the new Central Acute Services Building will open and will increase integration between Westmead Hospital, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and the University of Sydney. It will host several adult and children’s services, including emergency, pharmacy, imaging and state-of-the-art operating suites. The new facilities and services will improve health outcomes and experiences for our patients, carers, families, staff, students and communities.
Westmead Hospital Foundation’s fundraising support programs are needed more than ever to support the continued growth and expansion of services at Westmead Hospital now and into the future.
