HOW DO WE SERVE THE WAIKATO COMMUNITY?

WHAT WE DO

OWNERSHIP BRAEMAR HOSPITAL

Braemar Trust is the owner of Braemar Hospital, a long-standing and iconic Waikato business that is widely recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading private surgical hospitals. Our role is to work together with Braemar Hospital to support healthcare outcomes for the benefit of the wider region, with a strong focus on people, partnerships, scholarships, research, innovation and technology.

CHARITABLE CASES

We are proud to fund a number of charitable cases annually, and to support Braemar Hospital’s surgeons and anaesthetists in their charitable endeavours. This collaboration has enabled qualifying patients from our region (i.e. those unable to access care through the public hospital system, nor able to afford private treatment) to receive free specialist medical services, including day surgery through Braemar Hospital.

PARTNERSHIPS AND COLLABORATIONS

Partnerships and collaborations enable our funding and sponsorship dollars to go further and ‘do more’ for the region. In making decisions regarding partnerships, we are primarily focused on health related initiatives and supporting those organisations with whom we share a similar vision.  You can read more in our News section which outlines recent partnership projects.

TRAINING, EDUCATION AND SCHOLARSHIPS

The Trust believes in building capacity and capability within the wider health sector - both now and in the future - and to date has provided funding for ongoing medical practitioner professional development.

HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE, INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY

Braemar Trust’s strong relationship with Braemar Hospital allows us to better understand how health infrastructure, innovation and technology are evolving, and how they might contribute to the ongoing needs of the Waikato.  In line with our strategic intent, we look to support investments in this space, recognising that innovation in healthcare is critical to our region’s future.

MEDICAL RESEARCH

The Waikato Medical Research Foundation receives funding from us to support, teach and encourage medical and other health research, with the ultimate aim being to improve the medical care available to everyone in the Waikato region and beyond.

ONE OF OUR FULLY FUNDED CHARITABLE CASES

I would be most grateful if you would consider this delightful four-year-old girl for charitable surgery. She has recently arrived in New Zealand with her parents as they are studying to become missionaries. As they are on student visas, they are ineligible for public health services. This young girl has extensive dental cavities and requires multiple dental extractions and restorations. She is too young to manage so much treatment in the chair under local anaesthetic, despite her best efforts. It would be my pleasure to provide treatment to assist this family and would really appreciate your support.

APPROVED

The Braemar Charitable Trust was pleased to be able to work in partnership with the Paediatric Dental Surgeon and Anaesthetist to enable this young girl to receive the treatment she required.
