How your generosity helps

  • Educating the next generation: Epworth is committed to being a leading academic and teaching hospital, and your donations help Epworth to be one of the largest training hospitals in the country
  • Funding medical research: Donations pay for 80% of all medical research at Epworth, allowing Epworth patients potential opportunities to take part in treatment trials that may deliver health outcomes above what could be achieved in a standard clinical setting

Your support assists patients with the costs of travelling to their appointments, recovering from traumatic medical events and coping with the emotional side of serious illnesses like cancer
  • Purchasing new equipment: Donations help purchase more than a third of all new medical equipment at Epworth, ensuring patients access the best in medical and technological advances as they are treated
