Our Community

St Vincent’s Hospital has at its heart, a beautiful Mission, one which has been inspired by the Sisters of Charity who established our hospital and which is based on their belief in the dignity of every human person. They have entrusted all of us who work here with the responsibility to ensure that this Mission of love and service is alive and well in everything we do now and into the future. All of us in the St Vincent’s Health Australia family are passionate about our Mission and this can be seen and experienced every day throughout our services.

Within the Mission Directorate of St Vincents are a number of very special services, all of which enhance the experience of our patients and have within them staff members who are committed to serving something greater, seeing something greater and striving for something greater in all that they do.
