Health and hospitals
Our support in 2012/13: $121 million
Ever since Lotterywest held its first Lottery draw in 1933, public hospitals have been amongst the most important beneficiaries of our funding. In fact, Western Australia’s public health services are by far the biggest "winner" from our lottery business with ‘40% of net subscriptions’ as specified in the Act provided to the Hospital Fund held by Treasury for the State’s public hospitals and health services. In 2012/13, this was $121 million.
