Message from the CEO

This year has been another busy year for our Foundation and we are proud to celebrate our partnership with your Women’s and Children’s Hospital as they commemorate 140 years of caring for families.

Our biggest project for this year and next is progressing quickly, with construction of our Beach House in Victor Harbor well underway. Our focus is now on making the Beach House a home for all the families who will stay there.

Every year, with the support of our friends, the Foundation raises approximately $3 million for the hospital, which equates to $1.5 million annually towards medical research and a further $1.5 million per year for equipment and projects to improve the hospital environment (for things such as facility upgrades and our Arts in Health program).

I would like to thank all of our partners and supporters for their contributions to our fundraising efforts so far. Your contribution makes a real difference to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital community and the lives of families. Without you, this difference would not be possible.

Our office will be closed for the Christmas Holiday period from 1pm on Friday, 21 December 2018, reopening on Wednesday, 2 January 2019.

From all the staff and directors at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation I would like to wish you a safe and happy Christmas. We look forward to continuing to work with our donors, supporters and the hospital community in the New Year.

Jane Scotcher
Chief Executive Officer
