At Flinders Foundation our purpose is you.
We want you, our community, to live a longer and happier life.
We want you to overcome disease and illness so you can spend more time with the people you love. And while you’re fighting, we want to ease your pain, suffering and concern, and your family’s too.
That’s why every day, our team works to support the leading clinicians and researchers across Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to deliver better research, treatment and care and ensure they are equipped with the latest technology, in the best environment.
From cancer and mental health, to neonatal care, and everything in between - we’re working together to prevent, cure and care.
Thanks to enormous support from across the community, answers are being uncovered and significant medical breakthroughs at Flinders are having a global impact.
But there’s still such a long way to go. Help bring us closer to life-saving research and patient care.
Because our purpose is you.
