Our vision is to ensure people of Indigenous background make up at least 3 percent of our hospitals’ workforce by 2018.”— St Vincent’s Health Australia CEO Toby Hall launches St Vincent’s Reconciliation Action Plan 2015-2018.
St Vincent’s PET/CT Centre recently opened for out-patient services and will complement the new radiotherapy centre (soon to open).
