Strategy & vision

Our Strategic Plan 2018-22 provides a clear direction for Austin Health.

Our direction

Our Strategic Plan 2018-22 describes our three focus areas that we pursue to achieve our vision of "Shaping the future through exceptional, care discovery and learning'.

  • Partnerships: We'll partner with consumers to create a distinct approach to care that's reliable, safe and puts the patient at the centre, and we'll collaborate with local partners to improve the lives of people in our community
  • Transformation: We'll transform our digital environment by investing in new and emerging technologies and creating a centre for health data analytics
  • Growth: We'll advance the research and learning precinct in Melbourne's north-east, grow our delivery of specialised care in regional and state-wide services, and invest in building the capability of our people

Have a look at some of our staff talk about our exciting new future:
