The funding has meant that PMH has been able to advance its medical capabilities much more quickly than would otherwise have been possible. This includes being able to purchase equipment, fund the running costs of equipment, assist with the physical expansion of various departments within the hospital and undertake new research.

  • $1.4 million for the newborn hearing screening program
  • $1 million to establish the Telethon Total Care Unit for Children with Cancer
  • $875,000 to purchase a CT9800 Scanner

Telethon has also donated funds to PMH to:

  • help with the running costs of major equipment
  • establish a skin culture service for the Burns Unit
  • help with the upgrade of intensive care facilities
  • purchase a high frequency oscillatory ventilator and nitric oxide to aid children with chronic breathing and heart problems
  • buy a mobile x-ray machine for use in the Emergency Department
  • buy a ventilator used to assist breathing in patients during transfer to the Emergency Department
