With many rural patients travelling long distances to receive specialist private healthcare, St Vincent’s began discussions with the local Griffith community to establish a private hospital in the region to minimise travel and family separations. Based on the mission and values of St Vincent’s and the Sisters of Charity, a private hospital was needed to meet the demand for healthcare in regional NSW. The new St Vincent’s Private Community Hospital Griffith opened in 2016.
Over the past 5 years, services have grown and patients can now access over 30 medical specialties. The Hospital has cared for thousands of patients and their families, with a greater choice of treatment options available closer to home.
Over the next 5 years St Vincent’s Private Community Hospital Griffith is working towards establishing a regional health hub, developing vital services in the region including a Heart Health Centre, an upgrade to the Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) and Orthopaedic services, led by a number of our clinicians from the St Vincent’s Darlinghurst Campus. The regional health hub will provide greater continuity of care for patients and offer the best healthcare services in a regional setting.
Our goal is to raise $5 million over the next 5 years to support the development of the regional health hub to continue Caring for the Community.Donate now
