Flinders Medical Centre Foundation
Flinders Medical Centre Foundation



Flinders Foundation believes that the core purpose of our research should be to improve outcomes and care that will have a direct benefit to patients and their families.

Funding will be directed towards initiatives that can demonstrate significant advancements in models of care and outcomes for patients and their families. The Foundation will continue to work with the community and across the health sector to ensure funding is provided where it is needed most.

Our key priority areas are identified below.

If there is a specific area of the hospital or research that you would like to support that is not listed please contact us. We can give you more information on the needs of the area you are interested in supporting.




Each year the Flinders Foundation allocates a series of research grants to medical scientists based within Southern Adelaide Local Health Network. We support ongoing diversity of clinical development within all areas of health, and fund research projects which promote enhanced outcomes for our patients and their families.
