What is the Foundation?



Why St Vincent’s Hospital?

St Vincent’s has long been a leader in medical treatment in Australia – in the 1960’s we established Australia’s first Intensive Care Unit, in 2011 we performed the first hand transplant and in 2014 we utilised 3D printing technology to build a new heel to replace a cancerous bone.

Our vision is to continue leading the way but also to continue caring for the Victorian community. We’re on a mission - someone has to be! We need your help and support to continue our vision for the next 125 years.
