The Foundation has a close working partnership with Calvary Private Healthcare, the operators of Calvary John James Hospital, which is itself a not-for-profit charitable organisation. The John James Foundation considers applications from Calvary for additional specialist medical equipment, as well as capital works and upgrades to hospital facilities and fabric.
The goal is to ensure the Calvary John James Hospital remains a premier private hospital in Canberra, providing excellent services and facilities to all patients living in Canberra and surrounding region. To date, the John James Foundation has made contributions to the Hospital Partnership approaching $3 million for refurbishment, works and the purchase of a range of surgical and specialist equipment.
In 2014 the Foundation used an Australian Government grant of $502,000, as well as its own funds to undertake a range of heating, lighting and air-conditioning upgrades at the Hospital and in the Deakin Healthcare Campus.
