Join The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation Board


The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation: 2 x Non-Executive positions available

The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation is a charity which focuses on raising and distributing funds into the core areas of heart disease, lung disease, mental health, dementia and hospital innovation to help people live healthier for longer.

Through grants and public donations, The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation backs incredible researchers that are dedicated to making medical breakthroughs. The research we fund is focused on real outcomes and real impacts, taking medical discoveries from lab bench to bedsides. Every $44 that is donated means that researchers can continue working towards these breakthroughs.

There are several significant outcomes that we are working towards by backing our researchers including:

  • Improving patient mental health by reducing the impacts of delirium, PTSD and other trauma through ground-breaking innovations to the ICU environment.
  • Facilitating the early detection of dementia through the development of new technology and brain imaging techniques in a world-first project.
  • Improving the quality of life for those affected by the deadly occupational lung disease silicosis through early detection and treatment.

We’re also tremendously proud to share that just in the last 12 months, 11 lives have been saved as a result of a 4 year research project which focused on improving the quality of donor hearts available for transplant.
