Transfer of Mission and Ownership

Transfer of Mission and Ownership: Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital and Holy Spirit Aged Care Services to St Vincent’s Health Australia

St Vincent’s Health Australia has acquired 100 percent ownership of Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital from its partner The Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters.

The Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters entered an agreement to transfer Mission and 100 percent ownership to St Vincent’s Health Australia effective 9 October 2018.

The Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters Congregation has been reflecting for some time on their future missionary priorities. As a result, the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters decided to divest their health and aged care portfolio to enable them to focus on walking with the marginalised: refugees, victims of human trafficking, dementia care, women experiencing homelessness and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

For 17 years, the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters have partnered with St Vincent’s Health Australia in health ministry and the change of ownership of Holy Spirit Northside is a natural progression in this relationship.

The name Holy Spirit belongs to the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters; therefore, effectively immediately, the hospital will be known as St Vincent’s Private Hospital Northside.

Branding changes will occur over the coming months. Our existing operational activities and patient services will not be affected. The focus is to ensure we continue to serve the needs of our community reflected in our Mission as a Catholic healthcare organisation.
