Caring for our community since 1903

 

Adventist HealthCare Group CEO Dr Leon Clark reflects on the San's 110 year history.



 

 
"We have come a long way since we opened as a 70 bed ‘Sanitarium’ in 1903.
 
We now have over 500 beds, 2400 staff, 700 visiting doctors, care for more than 225,000 patients and 20,000 emergency admissions, and deliver than 2000 babies each year.
 
To continue to play this critical role, we need to change and grow….hence the major Redevelopment currently underway. Our new beds, operating theatres, cancer centre, maternity unit and supporting car parks and entry, will enable us to do this.
 
It is yet another significant milestone in our long proud history – but underpinned by the same overriding Christian and altruistic philosophy of the visionaries who built here in 1903 - to provide comprehensive services and promote health and healing in the community.
 
We thank everyone for your understanding while we have tried to meet the challenges of continuing hospital operations during this $200 million Redevelopment.
 
We thank our community for its support during our first 110 years.
 
We look forward to showing you how our new facilities will enable us, and the dedicated and committed health professionals who will follow us, to care for you and your families in the future."
 
Dr Leon Clark.
Adventist HealthCare Group CEO
