Mission & Values
Inspired by the values of the Sisters of Charity, our mission is to bring the healing ministry of Christ to all we serve.
As part of the larger ministry of Catholic health care in Australia, our commitment to holistic care is grounded in the Gospel and motivated by the values of charity, care and compassion. These values are central to how St Vincent’s Hospital responds to the needs of the sick and marginalised in the community.

Our vision is to serve the community through excellence in care, teaching and research in both public and private health and aged care services, and to reach out to the poor and the marginalised. In doing so, we maintain our fundamental respect for the skills and talents of our staff and our profound respect for the humanity of every individual patient.
