St John of God Health Services is part of the worldwide, not-for-profit health services of the Hospitaller Order of St John of God. This Catholic Order now operates 389 centres, hospitals and institutions in 46 countries.
The Order follows the mission, vision and values of St John of God, a humble 16th century man who, following a torturous experience in a medieval psychiatric hospital in Spain, went on to revolutionise the care and treatment of patients.

Indeed, in 2004, our two hospitals took part in a nationwide client satisfaction study, topping it in nine areas of client satisfaction, mostly notably providing the most helpful group therapy programs for patients. The study, which was designed to aid mental health providers better understand what patients most value during their hospital stays, analysed and compared satisfaction questionnaires returned by patients from 26 Australian mental health facilities over a three months period.
