The Besen Family - A big commitment to Maternal Fetal Medicine
More than 60 years ago, Marc Besen AO, launched his business empire. The fashion brand "Sussan" is just one of his ventures. Mr Besen established Highpoint Shopping Centre and remains a major shareholder.
Mr Besen visted Sunshine Hospital recently, with son Daniel, and daughter Debbie Dadon, who chairs the Besen Foundation. The family was keen to see the Maternal Fetal Medicine Unit, to which they have donated $300,000 to fund the purchase of specialist ultrasound systems. Forty special guests attended a celebratory morning tea on Thursday 27 November, 2014 at which Western Health Board Chair, The Hon Bronwyn PIke and Mr Besen unveiled a specially commissioned artwork, titled The Miracle of Life.
