A word from our Board Chair
Kerry Sanderson AC, Chair of St John of God Health Care Board
As a not-for-profit organisation and a ministry of the Catholic Church, St John of God Health Care has a proud history of allocating a percentage of revenue to fund the delivery of free and low-cost services for vulnerable and marginalised people in our communities.
It’s a commitment that stems from our vision and mission:
Our vision: To live and proclaim the healing touch of God’s love where we invite people to discover the richness and fullness of their lives, give them a reason to hope and a greater sense of their own dignity.
Our mission: To continue the healing mission of Jesus Christ through the provision of services that promote life to the full by enhancing the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual dimensions of being human.
Comprising of Social Outreach and Accord disability services, Community Services is a wonderful expression of St John of God Health Care’s Vision and Mission, supporting those in need to live their lives to the full.
The individuals that work together to deliver our Community Services,like all of St John of God Health Care caregivers, personify our Values, not only by striving for excellence in care and service delivery, but also by showing respect, hospitality and compassion to clients. Moreover, because a significant portion of Community Services’ funding is generated by the care delivered at St John of God Health Care’s hospitals, all of our caregivers and patients across our hospital network contribute to making our community services possible. In addition to exemplifying our Mission, Vision and Values, Community Services is also a wonderful example of what we can achieve by working together as a community, in the community.
