Improving the patient experience of healthcare is at the centre of much of our funding. Our aim is to provide not only the best care possible but also to ensure that the hospital experience is as good as it can be. We know that hospitals can be stressful places for both patients and their families and we aim to reduce that stress by creating a welcoming environment, providing assistance to those who may need that extra help and support.
We support the care of patients and their families by bridging the gap between the care The Royal Melbourne Hospital provides, by subsidising a variety of initiatives and programs that would not exist if not for generous donations. These include patient-centred programs, through to music and art therapy. These therapies can reduce anxiety and stress, and have enormous benefits for patients during both inpatient and outpatient treatments.
