Kinder, safer health care

In 2016 SVHA embarked on a program of culture change called ‘the Ethos Program – Inspired to Shine’. This will result in a kinder, safer and more reliable health care system. We recently reached an important milestone with the launch of the Ethos program at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne.

We made our workplace safer for our staff reducing our staff Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate from 12.55 in 2014-15 to 4.94 in 2016-17 putting our safety performance among health care industry best in the world.
