Cabrini Health is a large, not-for-profit health care network offering a comprehensive health service in the southeastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. With over 750 beds, it comprises Cabrini Ashwood, a residential aged care facility plus four stand-alone hospitals: Cabrini Hospital Malvern, the largest facility, provides paediatric and adult acute care plus emergency, critical care, maternity and home-based services; Cabrini Brighton provides paediatric and adult acute care services; Cabrini Prahran is a palliative care facility, providing inpatient and home-based palliative care; and Cabrini Hopetoun, which provides inpatient and outpatient post-acute rehabilitation. Patient and resident care is supported with pathology and medical imaging inpatient and outpatient services, a university affiliated education and research institute, and industry-recognised biomedical and linen services. Its strong Cabrinian identity is evident in the culture of service throughout the organisation and in its extensive social outreach program. In recent years this program has focused on improving indigenous health in Australia and developing international health partnerships, particularly in the Asia Pacific region.
The Missionary Sisters have been serving at St. Philip’s Mission in the lowveld region of Swaziland since 1971. Today, they continue to serve at the mission running the healthcare services, the outreaches and boarding hostels, as well as teaching in the school and providing skills training. In recent years, efforts have been made to respond to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Swaziland by expanding their services to include:
Cabrini Hostel – established to care for the high rate of children orphaned by AIDS. Many of the children are compromised by malnutrition and chronic conditions such as TB and kidney disease.
Agriculture – in 2005, Cabrini Ministries established an agricultural project. This project provides water for food and helps to create a sustainable income for approximately 200 people, in addition to serving the children at the hostel.
Home Based Care – Started with a grant from the Bristol-Myers-Squibb Foundation, the Home Based Care program focuses on caring for the sick and dying; testing for HIV; helping people begin treatment and transporting people to the hospital to receive treatment.
Education – The educational program began over fifteen years ago when it was discovered that many children in the homesteads were not in school and their families could not afford to send them. With the assistance of the Swiss Solon Foundation, once the children are on the foundation grant, their education is guaranteed through 7th grade if they pass. This increases their chances for individualized growth and better employment opportunities.
