Founded by the Sisters of Charity in 1909 the history of St Vincent’s Private Hospital dates back to 1838. In pursuing their Christian ministry these women engaged in broad based community support to respond to the healthcare needs of those they serve, especially the sick, poor and marginalised.
Today, St Vincent’s Private Hospital is part of St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney, the New South Wales division of St Vincent's Health Australia. Together with its partners St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney is one of Australia's leading Catholic not-for-profit healthcare providers.
St Vincent’s Private Hospital is a world-class medical and surgical facility and provides overnight and day only care across a broad spectrum of specialties. The 250-bed hospital cares for local, national and international patients.
Over 300 specialist consultants are accredited to admit patients to St Vincent’s Private Hospital and services are provided in major fields of medicine and surgery with the exception of obstetrics and paediatrics. With their support and through our continuous investment in modern facilities, the latest technological advances and specialised staff, St Vincent’s Private Hospital has become a leader in many areas including cardiac care, cancer, neurosurgery, orthopaedics, head, neck, and reconstructive surgery, laser and laparoscopic surgery.
A centre for education and research, St Vincent’s Private Hospital is an associated medical and teaching hospital for the University of New South Wales and University of Notre Dame Australia and has partnership agreements with the Australian Catholic University, University of Tasmania and the University of Notre Dame Australia for undergraduate and nursing students.
From humble beginnings St Vincent's Private Hospital today continues the mission of the Sisters of Charity and is internationally recognised as excelling in the provision of private healthcare services.
