BankVic helps shine a light on the unsung heroes of the RCH

A long term supporter of the health, emergency and public service sectors, BankVic is proud to sponsor the Hospital Heroes Gallery as part of the RCH’s 150th anniversary.

The Hospital Heroes Gallery is a series of portrait installations throughout 2020 and 2021 celebrating the ‘unsung heroes’ of the RCH who make the hospital the world-leading institution it is today.

While the first of six exhibitions opened in February as part of the official RCH150 launch celebrations, the exhibition has now moved ONLINE so the community can continue to learn about the heroes of the hospital. Titled ‘Fundamental Foundations’, the exhibition highlights the dedicated network of support staff who work tirelessly each day to ensure there are strong foundations for clinical staff to provide the greatest care possible.

“All staff at the RCH make a huge difference to the lives of sick children and the greater community. BankVic exists to strengthen the communities which we serve. As the bank for health, it is an honour to celebrate these staff not only at our RCH branch, but in all our branches across Melbourne,” said Anthony De Fazio, CEO of BankVic.

Meet the hospital heroes

The next Hospital Heroes Gallery, titled ‘Excellence’ will launch on Monday 7 September and run until February 2021. The hospital’s rich 150 year history is defined by the commitment of staff and supporters to the care of sick children. Using the hospital’s archival content, take a step back in time and meet those who helped pave the way to a brighter future in paediatric healthcare.

The gallery has been developed, produced and delivered in collaboration with RMIT University photography students.​
