Work is currently under way on Cabrini’s new Malvern building, Gandel Wing, thanks to principal donors John Gandel AC and Pauline Gandel. In their own words, they explain why they decided to support the construction philanthropically and what being part of the Cabrini family means to them.

My wife Pauline and I, along with our broader family, have had a long-standing association with Cabrini. We have seen first-hand their compassionate and respectful approach and they are indeed one of the best hospitals in Melbourne, if not Australia, providing world-class medical care. With their new, bold vision for the future that is underpinned by the New Clinical Building, they will continue delivering best quality care to numerous generations to come.

We would like to encourage the whole community to get behind this appeal and support it, each in our own way. No matter how big or small your contribution is, each and every gift can – and will – make a difference, and it will help Cabrini achieve its vision to provide best possible outcomes for patients and their families.

We are very honoured to be Joint Patrons of the Cabrini appeal for the New Clinical Building. Becoming involved with this initiative is very special to us and we are committed to helping in any way we can. This appeal is about the people. It is about showing each other that we care.
Together we are stronger and together we can all help ensure that Cabrini will continue to be at the very heart of this community, providing moments of hope and care that are so needed in the world today.
