Serving Something

Our Mission

To bring God’s love to those in need through the healing ministry of Jesus is the foundation of everything St Vincent’s Health Australia (SVHA) does. Whether our people are serving meals and cleaning rooms, or pursuing cutting edge research and saving lives, we seek to follow Christ’s example of healing the sick and walking alongside the poor and vulnerable, inspired by the vision, hard work and sacrifice of Mary Aikenhead and the Sisters of Charity.


For more than 175 years, St Vincent’s Health Australia has been called to bring God’s love to those who need it most. Compelled by Jesus’ example and that of the Sisters of Charity, we continue to serve those who are poor and vulnerable with deep compassion and unwavering dedication. It’s both our heritage and our legacy.
