Your donation to the new Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s hospital will provide best care to families across Melbourne’s west.
The hospital the west deserves
As our services expand, so too will the need for equipment and support materials. To provide the very best experience for mothers-to-be, we want to offer above and beyond the standard hospital birthing experience. And we want to reduce the frustration and distress for children and families waiting for care.
Your donation at work – supporting our wish list
Western Health has identified a list of ‘wish’ items that will mean families in Melbourne’s west will receive the best possible hospital experience.
Whether it be through state-of-the-art medical equipment; play spaces and positive distractions in children’s waiting rooms; or customisable audio and lighting moods in birthing suites; your support will make a difference to women and children across Melbourne’s west.
Your support will provide for additional medical equipment, ensuring our maternity and neonatal units are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to monitor both babies and mothers.
Your support will provide for additional birthing supports for mothers in labour such as flexible modular seating, birthing pools and rope supports to meet personal and cultural preferences.
Your support will provide for designated indoor and outdoor play areas to engage the imagination of our young patients and alleviate the anxiety of being in hospital.
Your support will provide for customisable sound and lighting in birthing rooms to provide for a calming environment for mothers in labour.
Your support will provide for high-tech spaces for older children undergoing treatment.
Your support will provide for essential care items in our special care nursery and neo-natal unit for sick and premature infants.
If you are interested in supporting a specific item or piece of equipment, please contact us on
