Good Samaritan Fund

What is the Good Samaritan Fund?

A key part of the Mission of St Vincent's Hospital is our care for patients who are experiencing high levels of poverty, vulnerability and hardship. For these patients a form of additional assistance would make a significant difference to their lives, contributing to their dignity, recovery and well-being.

The Good Samaritan Fund was established in December 2014 in response to this need. We invited staff to become Good Samaritans and have been thrilled with the response. Each pay, staff members volunteer to donate to the Fund.

The Good Samaritan Fund enables staff to assist our most poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged patients through their journey with us.

It is St Vincent's Mission in action.
