Why we run
For nearly 125 years, St Vincent’s Hospital has continued to grow and thrive into one of Australia’s most respected public healthcare providers.
It’s only through the generosity and support of Melbourne community groups, corporations and many incredibly big-hearted individuals that we continue to provide clinical excellence, cutting edge research and breakthrough innovation; all with the needs of our patients at the very core of our work.
In each and every department of St Vincent’s Hospital there is always more that could be done to ensure our patients continue to receive the best possible care. It’s those added extra’s that make all the difference to their hospital experience. It could be latest new piece of equipment, a motorised wheelchair, an ECG machine or a purpose built recliner chair for someone who is receiving treatment for cancer – the things that make a big difference.
The difference you can make
In 2016 – over 500 participants raised nearly $90,000! Thank you one and all for your contribution.
