Cabrini is a large, Catholic, private, charitable organisation, inspired by the spirit and vision of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini and the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (the Cabrini Sisters).

Cabrini provides a comprehensive range of high-quality acute, subacute, palliative care, primary care, residential aged-care, diagnostic and community-based health services across south-east Melbourne, including at our hospitals in Malvern and Brighton.

Our services span cancer care, chronic disease, emergency medicine, health promotion, heart services, homecare and community-based care, maternity services, paediatric care, palliative care, rehabilitation and residential aged-care, as well as education, health promotion and research.

Cabrini is a not-for-profit health service and all surpluses are used to develop our services and facilities to provide the best possible care for patients and families.

Delivering quality, compassionate care to our patients and residents is the primary focus of our work and at the heart of everything we do.

Cabrini Health is supported by the work of Cabrini Technology, Cabrini Research, Cabrini Outreach and Cabrini Foundation.
