Wellington Hospitals Foundation

Public Service



Wellington Hospitals Foundation is a registered Charitable Trust (CC22921) and the official charity of Wellington and Kenepuru Hospitals, Wellington Children's Rwegional Hospital and the Kapiti Health Centre.

The Foundation raises funds for projects to improve the comfort and wellbeing of patients and their families while they are being cared for in the region's hospitals.  The general purpose of the Foundation is to make a caring difference during difficult times by funding both medical equipment and other items to ease a patient's stay during their time in our hospitals.

The Foundation also looks after "HOSPI", the mascot for Wellington Regional Children's Hospital.  HOSPI is a loveable, courageous lion and is given to all young patients seen in the Children's Hospital.  HOSPI also makes appearances out in the community at various events and you can follow HOSPI on his Facebook page www.facebook.com/wellingtonchildrenshospital
