Our Purpose

We create ways for patients, their families, and our community to connect and show gratitude, enabling Cabrini to continue providing exceptional care for patients, now and in the future.

Cabrini Foundation works closely with donors, families and partners to raise essential funds to:

  • Purchase life-saving medical equipment and the latest technology
  • Conduct innovative clinical research projects
  • Provide professional development education for clinical staff.
  • Create state-of-the-art facilities through visionary capital projects

The work of the Foundation ensures Cabrini can continue to provide a wide range of vital healthcare services for the community as well as developing the next generation of healthcare professionals.

With no government funding, we can only do this with you: your gift ensures Cabrini is there for you and your family, when you need us most.

“You hold the key to affect change for today, tomorrow and the future. Your support will enable Cabrini to deliver the highest quality, compassionate care, with a commitment to innovation and research.”

A message from Sue Williams - Chief Executive, Cabrini Health

There's something about Cabrini...

Our heart and soul is filled with the values of compassion, integrity, courage and respect.

Cabrini Health is a Catholic, not-for-profit private health service located in Melbourne’s south-east. Inspired by the mission and ethic of care of the Cabrini Sisters, in 2023 Cabrini celebrated 75 years of providing quality, compassionate care to our community and a growing reputation for medical research.

We are the largest private cancer care provider in Victoria. Our service areas also include cardiology and other chronic diseases, orthopaedics, mental health services, maternity services and paediatric care.

Cabrini provides a comprehensive range of high quality acute, subacute, primary care, palliative care, diagnostic and community-based health services across south-east Melbourne and regional Victoria. The impact on individuals, families and the community has been immense and enduring.
