Looking back, stepping forward

We are grateful to all our supporters during this time of change in New Zealand’s healthcare. We celebrate them in our newsletter.

Welcome to our newsletter – a message from our Director, Candy Schroder (pictured far right).

We are excited to embark on a new era with Te Whatu Ora | Health New Zealand and continue supporting Auckland City Hospital and its associated community sites, including Greenlane Clinical Centre. 

We are also delighted to have a new name, Auckland Hospital Foundation | He Kāmaka Hōhipera ō Tāmaki, which reflects our commitment to fundraising for hospital advancements that help give every family the best possible healthcare.

I thank you for being part of that journey.

It has been heart-warming to witness the generosity our supporters have shown the hospital over a tough winter.  Along with our hospital teams and patients, I truly appreciate the healthcare developments that our supporters are helping to make possible, from new world-class equipment to the refurbishment of hospital facilities.

In this spring newsletter, our cover story celebrates the difference one family chose to make for patients in the hospital’s respiratory department.  This generous donation is helping ward staff do even more to improve patients’ experiences and health outcomes, which is a priceless gift.

Inside this newsletter, you will also read about staff training opportunities that simply would not be possible without our supporters.  Ensuring a strong, future-ready hospital workforce is vital to helping families live healthier, longer lives – we all have something to gain.  From fellowships to scholarships, our supporters are making dreams come true and contributing to all our health.

As we look to the future, with plans to help ‘change the game’ for stroke patients and make cancer treatments less stressful for people facing one of life’s greatest challenges, we also reflect on our achievements so far – all of which are thanks to our supporters.  We celebrate our fundraising highlights in this newsletter, showing where your donations are making the biggest impact.

Thank you to all our supporters who are helping to make our hospital treatments and therapies better, quicker and easier for everyone.  Together, we are doing even more.

With my warm wishes and sincere gratitude. Ngā mihi nui,

Candy Schroder
Director, Auckland Hospital Foundation
