Who We Are
Gold Coast Hospital Foundation is the official charity for Gold Coast Health. As a locally-based community organisation, we raise funds to support patients and their families by delivering local health programs and projects. Our purpose is to relieve medical hardship caused by illness, injury or disability while supporting the incredible patient care provided by Gold Coast Health medical professionals.
With no government funding, the Foundation relies on the generosity of its valued supporters, sponsors, corporate partners, community groups and individuals who raise crucial funds through donations, events, appeals, bequests, regular giving and other fundraising activities.
Together with this wonderful support, the Foundation is committed to raising much-needed funds to benefit the health and well-being of children and adults across the Gold Coast region.
The Foundation does not fund anything that government budgets provide, but rather delivers a range of vital support programs that would not otherwise be available to patients and their families at local public hospitals and community health facilities.
We fund and deliver the vital extras to improve patient care and comfort including:
- Cancer Patient Transport Service
- Emergency Accommodation Service
- Purchasing medical equipment and aids
- Funding hospital-led health research
- Improving hospital facilities and patient spaces
- Providing scholarships for Gold Coast Health staff
What We Do
With community support, Gold Coast Hospital Foundation funds medical equipment, health research and support programs for patients and their families at the following Gold Coast public hospitals and health care facilities:
- Gold Coast University Hospital
- Robina Hospital
- Varsity Lakes Day Hospital
- Southport Allied Health Precinct
- Robina Allied Health Precinct
- 13 community-based public facilities
No one in our community experiences hardship caused by illness or disability.
Raise funds to relieve the distress of illness, promote wellbeing and further medical advancements.
