Special Live Stream – Celebrating Compassionate Care

This year marks 130 years since the Sisters of Charity opened Australia’s first hospice in a small cottage in Darlinghurst. From its humble beginnings, Sacred Heart has grown to become a leading support facility offering comprehensive rehabilitation services as well as specialist supportive and palliative care.

To celebrate the occasion St Vincent’s Hospital held an official anniversary celebration hosted by Associate Professor Anthony Schembri AM, CEO, St Vincent’s Health Network Sydney. This was followed by an expert panel discussion.
