Wellington Hospitals & Health Foundation have assisted the funding of the restoration and re-installation of the original stained glass windows in the new Wellington Hospital Chapel. The windows have been a treasured feature of the hospital since their installation between 1965-85 in the original Nurses Memorial Chapel. Each window was generously donated by individuals and organisations, and it is great to see these wonderful windows continuing to provide a beautiful and symbolic backdrop for a special place of reflection, worship, and relaxation.

The Foundation is incredibly grateful for Kirkcaldie and Stains and the Rotary Club of Wellington combined efforts to raise $35,000 for Wellington Children's Hospital. This generous donation will help us to continue to make a difference in the lives of our sick kids.

A beautiful white baby grand piano was generously donated by Community Trust of Wellington. Located in the atrium of Wellington Hospital, and played by a number of talented volunteers, the piano has been a great asset towards making hospital visits more comfortable and relaxing. The peaceful music which drifts through the hospital has been a great success with patients, visitors, and staffs.

We need your help with special projects, to help us provide a positive healing environment, which helps our patients and their families deal with the stresses of illness and injury, and aids them in their recovery.

Prominent Wellington law firm DLA Phillips Fox have donated to the Foundation a number of etched glass panels for use in the New Wellington Regional Hospital.

The Foundation is looking for a positive go-getter to Manage the Foundation’s Volunteer Services at Wellington and Kenepuru Hospitals. To learn more visit Job Vacancies on this web site. Applications close 22nd February
