Heritage

The St Vincent’s group

We are part of St Vincent's Health Australia (SVHA) – the nation's largest Catholic not-for-profit health and aged care provider.

SVHA health and aged care facilities deliver compassionate and high quality services that perpetuate the vision of our founder Mary Aikenhead – to reach out to all in need of care.

St Vincent’s has been providing health care in Australia since 1857, when the Sisters of Charity established the first hospital in Sydney.

The Sisters of Charity legacy continues to inspire the St Vincent’s mission. SVHA has grown to encompass a diverse range of health services, residential care, research and education. We conduct services in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria in 20+ public hospitals, private hospitals, and aged care facilities.
