Welcome to St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney

St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney (SV&MHS) is the NSW-based arm of St Vincent's Health Australia which, together with its partners, is one of Australia's leading Catholic not-for-profit diversified healthcare providers with more than 6,500 employees working in healthcare, management and support services.

As a major provider of public and private health and aged care services, the group comprises St Vincent's Hospital, St Vincent's Private Hospital, Sacred Heart Health Service, Mater Hospital, St Joseph's Hospital and St Joseph's Village. Collectively, SV&MHS provides a broad range of care across community, outpatient and inpatient settings as well as residential aged care. Together, the facilities offer a comprehensive range of specialties covering; acute medical, surgical, obstetric, mental health, drug and alcohol, sub acute and diagnostic services in conjunction with medical and nursing teaching, research, residential aged care and general community programs. The work of our facilities is supported by significant investment in teaching and research in partnership with universities and affiliated research institutes.

The facilities have a diverse and rich history. All were founded by the religious congregation of the Sisters of Charity or, in the case of the Mater, the Sisters of Mercy. Committed to the mission and values of the Sisters of Charity and the Sisters of Mercy, these values - compassion, justice, human dignity, excellence, unity, mercy, hospitality and respect - drive our daily activities and vision to remain a leading health care organisation operating in both the public and private sectors. Our aim is to provide the highest standard of patient services based on a committment to total quality care. Through good management, the dedication of our staff and the provision of excellent facilities, we continue to uphold the tradition and reputation which our facilities have stood for since 1857.

As part of St Vincent’s Health Australia SV&MHS operates under the direction of the Trustees of Mary Aikenhead Ministries (TMAM). TMAM was established by the Sisters of Charity of Australia on 1 July 2009 to continue their work in health, education and welfare services. The name Mary Aikenhead Ministries was adopted in tribute to the foundress of the Sisters of Charity, Mother Mary Aikenhead. Inspired by her extraordinary example, we work together with TMAM to continue to bring this great tradition of service to all in need of care.
