St Vincent’s Health Australia has been providing health care in Australia for 160 years, since our first hospital was established in Sydney in 1857 by the Sisters of Charity.
Today, St Vincent’s Health Australia is the nation’s largest not-for-profit health and aged care provider. We operate six public hospitals, nine private hospitals and 16 aged care facilities in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Along with three co-located research institutes – the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, and St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research – we work in close partnership with other research bodies, universities, and health care providers.
St Vincent’s Health Australia employs around 18,400 staff and operates more than 2,600 hospital beds – providing more than 1 million episodes of care to patients each year – and 1,100 residential aged care places.
We provide compassionate care and support to patients and residents from all walks of life, but with a special commitment to people from vulnerable and marginalised backgrounds.
