The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) has this week opened a Hub at the Lyell McEwin Hospital that will help discover cures for illnesses and improve care for local communities.
The centrally located space enables the community, researchers and staff to discuss programs, make donations or buy tickets in the Hospital Research Home Lottery.
As part of an ongoing collaboration with the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network, the Hub will drive philanthropic growth and support medical research.
THRF has committed over $850,000 to translational medical research projects and patient care support within the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network. This week, it also announced $200,000 for the NALHN Palliative Care Service, to provide much-needed support for patients and their families.
THRF Chief Executive Paul Flynn said that the organisation exists to save lives.
“We generate philanthropic support and investment in clinical research that drives improvements in patient care for people living in Adelaide’s northern communities.
“This new Hub cements our partnership with the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network and our commitment to the health and wellbeing of the local community.
“We are now preparing to announce the next THRF grants round for research projects that will directly impact people living in the North.
“Our continued growth and expansion is made possible thanks to our generous contributors and ticket buyers in the Hospital Research Home Lottery.
“Donors can feel proud knowing that their bequests make a significant impact on improving health services in their local community.”
Northern Adelaide Local Health Network, Chief Operating Officer, Scott McMullen, said the collaboration has sparked world-leading research in Adelaide’s northern hospitals.
“I thank THRF for its commitment to our community.
“This relationship continues to strengthen and has supported vital areas of research including heart disease, pregnancy complications, diabetes and palliative care.”
THRF has supported The Queen Elizabeth Hospital for more than 50 years and recently expanded its reach to include the Royal Adelaide Hospital, SA Pathology, the Jamie Larcombe Centre and Lyell McEwin Hospital.
