St John of God Health Care has a proud reputation for delivering outstanding patient care and clinical excellence, and over the past three decades our supporters have played a critical role in enabling this world-class care. For several years now we have had the honour to partner with Stan Perron Charitable Foundation, an organisation synonymous with philanthropy and well known for making a positive contribution to Western Australian communities.

In 2024, Stan Perron Charitable Foundation has generously provided funding for several vital pieces of equipment for hospitals across WA that will help to deliver the very best care for vulnerable babies and children.

  • At St John of God Midland Hospital, Stan Perron Charitable Foundation has contributed to the purchase of a new video laryngoscope. This piece of equipment is used to help visualise the airways of tiny neonatal babies, and is crucial for enabling caregivers to more safely and easily insert breathing tubes.
  • Also at Midland, the Airvo3 has been funded to support paediatric patients in respiratory distress by improving oxygenation, helping little ones to breathe easier and enhancing their overall comfort.
  • A giraffe incubator care station has been funded for St John of God Subiaco Hospital, new technology which helps to monitor and support the health and development of fragile infants. Providing this environment in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit will promote natural, peaceful healing for babies and help foster a close bond between them and their families while they are in hospital.
  • To help reduce distress and discomfort when locating veins on children, an AccuVein Finder has been funded for St John of God Murdoch Hospital’s paediatric ward. This equipment will help clinicians to more quickly, safely and accurately locate veins on children and reduce their anxiety.
  • Stan Perron Charitable Foundation’s generosity extends beyond the Perth metropolitan area, with support for St John of God Bunbury Hospital. A new paediatric Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) endoscope will enhance the hospital’s existing ENT service, making care closer to home a reality for children in the South West, meaning families will be less likely to have to travel to Perth for surgery.

We are truly grateful to the Stan Perron Charitable Foundation for their compassion and ongoing commitment to ensuring better health outcomes for our communities. Their kindness will be felt by children and families far and wide across WA, for many years to come.
