Leading health and wellbeing provider Westfield Health celebrate their centenary year
Founded on 3rd July 1919, Westfield Health was initially created to support Sheffield’s four hospitals: The Royal, The Royal Infirmary, The Children’s and Jessops Hospital for Women, and it was originally known to most as The Sheffield Hospitals Council.
Since then, Westfield Health has adapted to change and constantly evolved to meet their customers’ ever-changing needs. From the ‘Penny in the Pound’ scheme devised by Fred Osborn in 1921, to the cutting edge health and wellbeing solutions that are helping people, communities and workplaces today to be healthier, Westfield Health continues to push boundaries and grow as a company.
With the good of the community a core value of Westfield Health, on 14th October 1965 they established the Sheffield and District Hospital’s Services Charitable Fund, donating annual funds for the purchase and repair of equipment in local hospitals. Since 1965 they are proud to have donated over £15 million to local and national hospitals and charities that support people’s health and wellbeing.
Graham Moore, Chairman of Westfield Health, is proud to be part of the organisation’s history. He commented: “We’re delighted this year to be celebrating our 100th birthday, to recognise the contribution our predecessors have made in having a vision of helping more and more people to live healthier and happier lives. They have left us with a tremendous legacy, that we are privileged to take on.”Back
