Cabrini is a Catholic, charitable institution sponsored by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which provides health and health-related services in Australia. This order was founded by Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917) who was proclaimed Universal Patron Saint of Immigrants because of her lifetime’s work with immigrants. Founded in 1948, Cabrini’s services in Australia span aged care, cancer care, cardiac services, emergency medicine, health promotion, home/community-based care, maternity services, paediatric care, palliative care, rehabilitation, research and education, as well as social and community outreach services.
