Vision and Mission

The St Andrew’s Hospital Foundation was founded on St Andrew’s Day 2000 with one of Australia’s ‘Natural Living Treasures’, Dr Basil Hetzel AC as its inaugural Patron. As was the case with the Auxiliary before it, the principal objective of the Foundation was to provide St Andrew's Hospital with financial support, enabling the hospital to maintain state of the art equipment and facilities and to provide specialised staff education and training.

Today, the vision and mission of the foundation remain central to guiding our strategic aim of supporting St Andrew's Hospital.
