Donors may choose to specify a research project, a piece of medical equipment on our wish list or a particular program within Northern Health where they’d like their donation to go. Alternatively, supporters may choose to leave their donation unspecified which allows us to direct those funds to the area within Northern Health that needs it most.
Donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
Here are just some of the areas in which your support can make a big difference:
The Northern Health research program focuses on ‘Good health for life’ with projects spanning the fields of genetics; chronic disease; aging; health systems, structure and processes; which are all significant issues for our local community.
Research is an integral part of Northern Health’s future and we are committed to increasing our research capacity by raising additional funds, building new partnerships and collaborating with universities, research institutes and other health services.
Staff education and development
The dedication, expertise and ‘can do’ attitude of our Northern Health staff is something we’re very proud of. Education is a crucial factor that will help ensure our staff continue to provide the best level of care available. Our teaching and learning programs play a key role in training health professionals whose work will benefit the northern community.
Improving and expanding our facilities are crucial factors as we look towards the future across four Northern Health operating campuses:
- The Northern Hospital, Epping
- Broadmeadows Health Services
- Bundoora Extended Care Centre
- Craigieburn Health Service.
Two levels of the Northern Centre for Health Education and Research (NCHER) were completed for the start of the 2015 academic year, enabling Northern Health to train an additional 900+ health professionals.
An additional $5 million is required to complete the fit out of the third floor, which will incorporate expanded and improved Northern Health library facilities, providing easy access for students and clinicians alike.
