The RCH Foundation supports the hospital, and also its campus partners, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and The University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics.
This collaboration creates a comprehensive children’s hospital campus incorporating clinical care, research and teaching, with all organisations sharing a commitment to improving the health outcomes for children today and in the future.
improving health outcomes
Thanks to your support, our sick children benefit from the expertise of the best and brightest medical minds, ground-breaking research that pushes the boundaries of paediatric healthcare, the most modern and advanced equipment that changes lives, and of course nurturing care that puts children and families first.
supporting a collaborative campus
The campus fulfils its purpose by being a major contributor to the creation of knowledge for disease prevention and treatment, by educating health professionals and the community, and by applying the knowledge clinically and through appropriate population interventions.
This environment attracts and retains the most talented and highly motivated staff to give effect to the vision.
The RCH Foundation helps the campus partners to fulfil this vision by supporting projects and initiatives that fall within our key areas of priority across these organisations.
