Indigenous artist Chris Delamont and his painting "Bindari"

Our talented artist, Wiradjuri / Nari Nari man and St Vincent's Indigenous Recruitment Coordinator, Christopher Delamont, shares the inspiring story that he has captured so beautifully on canvas for us, hanging in the entrances of each of our St Vincent’s Private Melbourne Hospitals. 

Recently, we commissioned Chris to paint a welcoming artwork so that our First Nations patients feel a warm welcome that speaks to them as they arrive at the Hospital for admission or to visit family.

Chris has called his piece Bindari “Place on the Hill”. It is a large piece painted in acrylic.

Please take a moment to listen as Chris details story of the amazing piece that he has painted for us.

St Vincent’s Private Hospital Melbourne acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land where our four hospitals are on. We pay our respects to all the people of the Kulin nation, our First Nations staff and patients and their families.

Better and fairer care. Always.

In a rapidly transforming world, St Vincent's has created a refreshed vision and strategy to help shape Australia's health and aged care future.
