The Hospital Research Foundation launches new branding, spectacular Bunsen Burners and Bowties Dinner
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Research Foundation has embarked on a landmark new phase having launched a vibrant new logo and brand – The Hospital Research Foundation – coupled with a move in office location.
Despite being a well-known name in South Australia, a review was undertaken to ensure The Hospital Research Foundation brand remained distinctive, relevant and reflected its core purpose - supporting world-class medical research, as well as a defined vision for the future.
The Hospital Research Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Paul Flynn, said it was a significant time for the Foundation as it celebrates 45 years supporting translational, bench to bedside medical research at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Basil Hetzel Institute.
“The Foundation has achieved a remarkable milestone; it provides us with a wonderful legacy and a solid foundation on which we are building a meaningful future that will in turn benefit the health of all Australians though improved medical treatments and patient care,” he said.
The Hospital Research Foundation was initially set up in 1965 to support clinical research within the Queen Elizabeth Hospital; The Foundation has experienced significant growth since and was in need of a fresh identity that would resonate with the community.
“It’s a change that not only injects new energy into The Hospital Research Foundation but also signals an exciting new chapter for The Foundation, having relocated just next door to 60 Woodville Road, Woodville, South Australia,” Mr Flynn said.
The Foundation provides funding for vital health research projects that are changing the face of medical treatments in SA, as well as the world, and elements of the new logo represent this, together with the link between medical research, people and the care they receive in hospitals.
“The new design concept symbolises The Hospital Research Foundation’s support for a breadth of research projects and hospitals, including our own research facility the Basil Hetzel Institute, that continue to break new ground in vital medical research,” Mr Flynn said.
With a long history within the state, Mr Flynn added that the new brand identity would continue to reflect The Foundation’s core characteristics and commitment to providing vital awareness and support for medical research.
To conincide with their rebrand, The Hospital Research Foundation are hosting their annual Bunsen Burners & Bowties Dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel on Friday 5 November.
Don’t hesitate, purchase tickets and support medical research!
This year’s dinner is going to be different; a truly entertaining night with a quirky spin on the traditional fundraising dinner. It will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel on Friday 5 November.
The Hospital Research Foundation are bringing it back to basics – their mission is to improve the lives of friends and families by raising money for world-leading medical research.
