About the Western Health Foundation
The Western Health Foundation is the official fundraising body for Western Health.
We were established by Western Health in 2011 to increase philanthropic support and increase awareness of our medical research programs and the world class healthcare provided across our health service.
Our member hospitals include Sunshine, Footscray, Williamstown and Sunbury, and our health service offers help to more than 800,000 people and has been doing so for a long time - Williamstown Hospital is the oldest suburban hospital in Victoria.
With two acute teaching hospitals and the provision of a comprehensive and integrated range of services, Western Health provides life-changing and life-saving services.
The Western Health Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for Western Health to continue providing the best care for the people of Melbourne's west.
