Research provides the opportunity for our staff to investigate and implement life-saving opportunities for our patients

Health research across the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service (DDHHS) is given an added boost every year with the Pure Land Learning College’s generous annual $120,000 donation to the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation for the ongoing support of annual Research Project Scholarships. 

The Pure Land Learning College funding allows THF to support the delivery of innovative healthcare services for our patients.

Each year, staff at the Toowoomba Hospital, Baillie Henderson Hospital and Mt Lofty Heights Nursing Home are invited to submit applications for funding and drive research activity within the DDHHS.

The Research Project Scholarships are awarded in two categories:

  • Novice (up to the value of $10,000)
  • General (up to the value of $50,000)

This research makes the possibility of new discoveries and treatments for our patients a reality.

In the last 10 years, Pure Land Learning College have invested over $1.5 million into research scholarships for Toowoomba Hospital, Baillie Henderson and Mt Lofty Heights Nursing Home staff.

Their annual funding sees about 25 research scholarships awarded to staff per year.
