Our Mission / Objective

Northern Health Foundation’s purpose is to fundraise to support the work of Northern Health and to fund Research.  Funds are directed towards teaching, training and research; education; capital works; and the purchase of medical equipment within Northern Health.

We work collaboratively with Northern Health to engage our clinicians, volunteers, staff and community to develop a culture of philanthropy through innovative engagement.

Our Services

Northern Health is the major provider of acute, maternity, sub-acute and ambulatory specialist services in Melbourne’s north.

Our campuses include Broadmeadows Hospital, Northern Health – Bundoora, Northern Health – Craigieburn and Northern Hospital in Epping.

Across our campuses we provide a range of primary, secondary and some tertiary health care services, including:

    • Emergency and intensive care;
    • Acute medical, surgical and maternity services;
    • Sub-acute, palliative care and aged care; and
    • Specialist clinics and community-based services.

Our Beneficiaries

Northern Health is situated in the Northern Growth Corridor catchment includes three of the state’s six growth areas: the City of Hume, the City of Whittlesea and the Shire of Mitchell. This includes the rapidly expanding metropolitan region north of Epping and Broadmeadows including Craigieburn and South Morang; the future suburbs of Cloverton and Merrifield; and the rural communities of

Kinglake, Kilmore and Seymour. The Northern Growth Corridor population is expected to grow by 58% (over 228,000 people) between 2016 and 2031. This includes 17% growth between 2016 and 2021 – an increase of over 69,000 people within this 5-year period.

Northern Health treats patients from many different socio-economic backgrounds, who are born in more than

185 countries, speak over 106 different languages and follow over 90 different religions/beliefs. The breadth of poor health risk factors and established complex disease in the community is significant, with residents of the outer north having generally poorer health status. This includes higher than average levels of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high-blood pressure, higher rates of smoking and higher rates of family violence incidents.

We work closely with local government, primary care, community health partners and private healthcare providers to deliver the right care in the right place. We pursue our commitment to treat more people locally so that they get the care that they deserve close to home and surrounded by the support of their community.

Projects in Progress

Northern Health is upgrading the Northern Hospital with the development of a new wing and tower behind the existing hospital situated in Epping, Victoria.

The first stage of the redevelopment is scheduled to open in March 2019 which will see a new Intensive Care Unit being opened increasing the level of care available to Northern Hospital patients who live in the local area or regional Victoria.  It will also reduce the need to move critical patients to other Hospitals to receive more complex treatment.  The redevelopment project is just the first step in meeting the increased demands for healthcare in the Northern Growth Corridor where the population is expected to double by 2030.

To learn more about the Northern Hospital Redevelopment Project and opportunities to partner with the Foundation please contact Yvonne Amos, Foundation Director, on (03) 8405 2313 or email Yvonne.Amos@nh.org.au.
