Local Hospital
Projects

 

With your support, we can strengthen the hospital you rely on.

When you support your local hospital, you are supporting your local community.

The Common Good doesn’t just champion life-saving medical research. We also assist with hospital innovation projects that advance patient care, comfort and recovery.

Whilst the hospitals that we support are public sites, there are many projects and services within them that don’t receive government funding. By supporting The Common Good, you help fill those gaps – the gaps that fund innovative projects to provide an extra level of care, support and comfort for the local community who rely on these hospitals.

Every community is different, and The Common Good works to grow health services and support programs catering to the needs of the communities we serve.
