About us


Through the support of the community, our mission is to fund life-enhancing medical research and clinical care, and to advocate excellence, promote collaboration and foster talent.


We value and focus on high benchmarks for research and clinical care that will yield the optimum outcomes for patients and medical cures.


We celebrate the rewards of medical breakthroughs and the strength of the Westmead campus to achieve life-transforming results.

Our Purpose

Thanks to people like you, the Westmead Foundation are able to support the delivery of medical research and patient care, with local and global outcomes.  Locally, we fund new, cutting-edge medical equipment and innovative patient services, to provide patients with access to the best possible treatment; globally, because together we are funding life-saving, visionary research projects in search of prevention, treatments and cures to some of the most devastating diseases affecting all communities.

That’s why we invest in critical care and life-saving research at Westmead. To make this happen, we need your help.

Your support helps us continue the extraordinary health care and research at Westmead Hospital. In addition to the funds provided by the NSW State Government for capital works and the functional needs of the Hospital, we work with the amazing staff who care for the people of Greater Western Sydney to provide specialist medical equipment. With your support, we can ensure these amazing doctors and nurses are equipped with the world’s best equipment to help the people of our community and beyond.

We also work to fund ground-breaking research at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research (WIMR). Across a range of research areas, WIMR aims to achieve the greatest possible translation of research into new treatments and vaccines, ensuring practical outcomes that directly improve people’s lives.
