About us

Austin Health works to improve health outcomes and reduce risk for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) patients. We aim to make the Austin an accessible, safe and welcoming and  place for everyone.

The Austin Health Diversity Plan 2015-20 outlines the concept of diversity as one of inclusiveness and respect and includes many things that make us unique such as culture, language, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age or literacy level. The Plan recognises that Austin Health provides services to a diverse population. Our goal is to provide accessible and responsive services for everyone knowing that if people are unable to access care, this can impact on their health, well being and participation in life and in their community.
