RBWH Foundation is the charity for Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.
Our role is to ensure the dedicated staff at the hospital have the funds needed to conduct ground-breaking medical research and access the latest equipment, technology and training so they can provide the best possible care for all patients.
While RBWH is part of Queensland Health, the government simply does not have the funds in its budget to pay for ‘non-essential’ services. RBWH Foundation’s role is to help fill that funding gap with the support of the community. We aim to provide RBWH with the financial support needed to evolve, innovate and remain at the forefront of healthcare in Queensland.
With the help of the Foundation, RBWH is able to invest in medical research, upgraded patient care offerings, and innovative programs and facilities to ensure optimum outcomes for patients in the longer term.
Today, RBWH is the largest and busiest hospital in Queensland, caring for over 600,000 patients a year. It houses close to 1,000 beds with a number of specialties including medicine, surgery, orthopaedics, neurology and trauma services, and Queensland’s largest cancer care service.
