Ballarat Health Services values and appreciates the help it receives from the community it serves. Historically both the Base Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Centre have been given generous support and encouragement from the people of Ballarat and the Grampians Region of western Victoria for more than 150 years.

Today the support is still as vital and important as ever as we continue to provide first class facilities and equipment in order to give our medical and nursing staff an extra edge in delivering the best health care.

In 2010 the “Spread Our Wings” campaign resulted in more than $500,000 being channeled towards the redevelopment of the BHS Base Hospital’s Emergency Department, a service used by more than 50,000 people in 2009-2010. In 2009 support from the community allowed the Ballarat Health Services Foundation to buy a neonatal isolette and an in-utero feotal monitor for the Special Care Nursery. The nursery provides dedicated, specialist care for babies, many of them born prematurely or recovering from an early medical complication.

This support has come from individuals, families, community groups, service clubs schools and businesses.

Donations as well as in-kind goods for raffles or auctions can be made to Ballarat Health Services or to the Ballarat Health Services Foundation.
