Crisis demands agility and compassion. St Vincent’s Hospitals response to COVID-19 is a reflection of this and our commitment to the mission of the Sisters of Charity to care for everyone in our community when they need us the most. With your help, we raised more than $2.7 million to ensure that projects where government funding is not accessible could be immediately enabled. Your support has allowed St Vincent’s to ensure an agile, compassionate and sustainable response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some of our achievements during this time of need have been supported by our family of donors, including:
We also facilitated equipping St Vincent’s Private Hospital Sydney with additional equipment for ICU to support St Vincent’s Public Hospital in the treatment of acute COVID-19 patients if required.
Donations also supported a research priority – the ADAPT trial – which aims to understand the significant differences in innate and adaptive immune responses to and outcomes based on severity of the Corona virus. It is hoped that this study under the leadership of Professor Gail Matthews will help to identify patients at higher risk as well as track long term health outcomes of patients.
Thank you again for your ongoing support. If you would like to assist, you can donate online or call our team on 1800 800 595.
