The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation

About us

The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation is the charity aligned with the health and medical research community based at The Prince Charles Hospital.

Established in 1986, we are charged with the responsibility to inspire a generous community to fund lifesaving and life changing health research which is tackling Australia’s most significant chronic diseases.

Our aim is to provide more than $5M per annum to support the research teams that are focussed on the early detection, treatment and recovery from heart disease, lung disease, dementia and arthritis including improving hospital care, surgery, rehabilitation and the use of new technology.

While our home is located in Chermside (Brisbane, Australia) the chronic illness that we are helping to fight against threaten the lives of 80% of all Australians. These diseases know no boundary – and neither do we.

We are currently funding around 68,000 hours of research annually across 120 projects – but the need is far greater. The more hours we can fund, and the equipment we can provide, the faster health outcomes are achieved.

Almost all of us in our lifetime will be faced with the onset of chronic disease. Most of us have someone we love struggling with it today. Our desire is to do something about it. By detecting the disease early, by improving the treatment and by improving the recovery and rehabilitation we can live longer and healthier lives.

Public donations go to where they are most useful, thanks to our café.
