About Us

Canossa Private Hospital operates 94 inpatient beds where individuals receive compassionate and holistic care.

Canossa Private Hospital works closely with a range of specialist physicians to provide a specialised medical service.

About The Canossian Sisters

Established by The Canossian Daughters of Charity, Canossa Private Hospital opened in 1962, not long after the Canossian Sisters arrived in Australia.

Originally the Sisters were called to serve in education, but the need for health care was emerging and so with courage and resilience the Sisters began the mission of caring for the sick.

After nearly 60 years at the helm of the service, on 1 December 2020, the Sisters transferred the operation of Canossa Private Hospital to Ozcare.

Ozcare is honoured to be entrusted with the continued care of patients at Canossa Private Hospital and remains dedicated to upholding the esteemed reputation of the Canossian Sisters.
