East Timor Hearts Fund goes national with new Sydney partners
14 August 2016
East Timor Hearts Fund is delighted to announce new partnerships with two leading New South Wales medical institutions, in a significant expansion of our program.
Recently signed agreements with Eastern Heart Clinic and Prince of Wales Private Hospitals, both in Randwick, will see nine patients treated in Sydney over the next three years.
Eastern Heart Clinic will provide day cardiac procedures for patients, and Prince of Wales Private Hospital will provide post-operative care.
These latest partnerships are the first outside Victoria, and bring a welcome national focus to our growing organisation.
They are part of our organisation’s plan to increase the scale and scope of our work. As well as treating up to 20 patients a year in Australia, our goal is to support the development of capacity in Timor-Leste with projects including visiting surgical teams, health and medical training and research and preventative programs.
The first patient under the agreement will be treated this month.
We are excited at the opportunity to work with Eastern Heart Clinic and Prince of Wales Private Hospital (owned by Healthscope) and thank both organisations sincerely for their support of our mission of delivering world-class cardiac care to our neighbours in Timor-Leste.
