Established in 1885, our mission is to provide healthcare to the most vulnerable, including those reaching the end of their life. We are deeply committed to, and guided by, the following values:

 

hospitality.svg

Hospitality

Hospitality demonstrates our response to the desire to be welcomed, to feel wanted and to belong. It is our responsibility to extend hospitality to all who come into contact with our Services by promoting connectedness, listening and responding openly.

Healing

Healing demonstrates our desire to respond to the whole person by caring for their spiritual, psychological and physical wellbeing. It is our responsibility to value and consider the whole person, and to promote healing through reconnecting, reconciling and building relationships.

 

 stewardship.svg

Stewardship

Stewardship recognises that as individuals and as a community all we have has been given to us as a gift. It is our responsibility to manage these precious resources effectively now and for the future. We are responsible for striving for excellence, developing personal talents, material possessions, our environment, and handing on the tradition of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary.

   respect.svg

Respect

Respect recognises the value and dignity of every person who is associated with our Services. It is our responsibility to care for all with whom we come into contact with justice and compassion no matter what the circumstances, and we are prepared to stand up for what we believe and challenge behaviour that is contrary to our values.

 

We look forward to welcoming you into the Calvary community.
