Patient care is our primary focus at Cabrini.
Cabrini has a proud history of caring for the community. Cabrini is owned and operated by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus who came to Australia in 1948 to take over the management of a 45-bed community hospital named St Benedict’s. Cabrini now has more than 800 beds with a full range of health services. There are acute facilities at Malvern, Prahran and Brighton, a residential aged care home at Ashwood and a rehabilitation service at Elsternwick. The Cabrini Institute supports education and research to continually improve the quality of care and educate tomorrow’s health professionals.
Cabrini is a not-for-profit health service and all surpluses are used to develop our services and facilities so that we can provide the best possible care for our patients and their families.Dr Michael Walsh
