Message from our Patron


As Patron of the Barwon Health Foundation, I have seen firsthand the amazing work achieved through the generosity of the community and I would like to thank you for the consideration you may give to leaving a gift in your will.

It doesn’t matter how large or small your gift might be, as each and every gift can make an enormous positive impact on the region’s future health needs ensuring the Geelong community is able to access high quality healthcare well into the future.

If you or your loved ones have ever required the care of the Barwon Health medical services, you will appreciate how important they are and recognize just how vital it is for us to find the best care, better treatments and means of prevention of so many diseases that afflict our community.

In contributing to areas such as research, your gift has the potential to unlock discoveries that could assist those not only in the region but across the world.

Of course, you can specify a particular area that you wish your gift to be applied to – for specific areas of medicine or care, the wonderful and well established world-class research, or equipment. Alternatively, you can leave it to the Foundation to allocate funds to areas where it is most required.

Government funding provides a good health service. With community support Barwon Health can continue to maintain standards of excellence.

When you do leave a Future Gift for Barwon Health, please make sure that you advise the Foundation and I will look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Malloy Bequest Society.

I invite you to join me in leaving a gift for our future.

Peter Hitchener OAM
