St Vincent's Private Melbourne's Quality of Care Reports

"While the trials of the pandemic now seem a distant memory, the challenges of 2023 were met head-on as our team navigated through another demanding year with resilience and determination. 

The evolution of the twelve-storey redevelopment in Fitzroy has been a source of great excitement for us, as each level was added. Additionally, through the benevolence of the community and our valued donors, we successfully implemented MAKO robotic technology at St Vincent’s Private Werribee. This marks the incorporation of the fourth robot within our Melbourne private hospital operating theatres. 

Our compassionate care extended to 62,827 inpatients including many patients from public hospital waiting lists, reflecting our commitment to the well-being of our community. We supported families as 2094 babies were delivered and introduced the innovative BabyCam into our operating rooms at Fitzroy. This ground-breaking addition allows mothers undergoing uncomplicated caesarean births to witness their baby’s initial moments of care on a large television screen. 

In the midst of bidding farewell to cherished retiring members of our medical staff, we warmly welcomed a cadre of new staff, ensuring the continuity of St Vincent’s Health Australia’s healing ministry. For a third consecutive year, we were rated the number 1 Private Hospital in Australia by Medibank Private patients nationwide, an outstanding achievement. 

I am immensely proud of our exceptional team including the many Volunteers and Consumer Representatives that make up our extended St Vincent’s Private Hospital family. As you delve into the pages of the 2023 Quality of Care Report, I hope you enjoy the stories that reflect a snapshot of our collective journey over the past year."
