THRF CEO Paul Flynn said the projects will provide meaningful outcomes for the community.

“THRF is committed to funding projects which will improve the health and wellbeing within our hospitals and we look forward to working with these recipients to deliver outcomes in these critical healthcare areas,” Paul said.

“This support would not be possible without the generosity of THRF donors and ticket buyers in the Hospital Research Home Lottery.”
