Northern Health Foundation was established in 2005 to increase the philanthropic, corporate and community support for Northern Health.

Funds raised are allocated towards the purchase of vital life-saving equipment, capital works, research and training.

Northern Health is the key provider of acute, sub-acute and ambulatory specialist services in Melbourne’s northern region. The Northern community, located in one of Victoria’s most significant growth corridors and our local population is estimated to grow by an additional 228,000 people by 2031.

Our catchment encompasses the rapidly expanding local government areas of Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Nillumbik, Whittlesea and Moreland. Our Northern community is exceptionally diverse, with 185 countries of origin speaking more than 118 different languages.   Spoken, many of our community experience socio-economic disadvantage.

Our vision at Northern Health is to create a healthier northern community, and our key challenge now and in the years ahead, will be to continue to provide accessible, quality care to meet the varied and growing needs of the Northern community.
