Strategies and plans

The strategies and plans we use to deliver our direction and vision for Austin Health.

Strategic Plan 2023–27

Our Strategic Plan for the next five years is ambitious. It provides a bold and transformative direction for our future.

We have learnt from the challenges of the past few years and know that our environment can change quickly and that some factors are outside our control. Taking these lessons forward, this Strategic Plan allows us to be agile and responsive, balancing focus with flexibility. It allows us to respond to changing needs in our communities and the healthcare environment over time.
