What does the Foundation do?

With help from our community, we fund a number of specialised programs and medical equipment to help our patients and train Darling Downs Health staff.

These programs and equipment help open up opportunities of care and bring extra comfort to people who are struggling and are in need.

We've helped fund:

  • healthcare equipment
  • health services and programs for the Darling Downs region
  • training and programs for our staff
  • accommodation for rural patients
  • research and scholarships for Darling Downs Health staff.
