2016 Beneficiaries

41 different beneficiaries benefited from the generosity of the people of WA from Telethon 2016 which was held over the weekend of Oct 15 & 16, 2016. Our two main beneficiaries are Telethon Kids Institute and Princess Margaret Hospital.

Perth Children’s Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital for Children

One of the principal beneficiaries of Telethon is the Princess Margaret Hospital for Children (soon to be the new Perth Children’s Hospital), which is gaining a reputation as one of the world’s leading paediatric facilities.

Thanks to Telethon funding, PMH (and soon to be PCH) has established the Telethon Clinical Research Centre. Established to discover new cures, therapies, medical equipment and other interventions for sick children. The Telethon Clinical Research Centre aims to ensure that all children throughout WA have access to the latest cutting edge and most effective therapies.
