Palliative Care & Rehabilitation

“Palliative and Rehabilitative Care, at Sacred Heart from its pioneering beginnings, has continued to lead the way through acclaimed service and academic development in NSW. We have always been able to add that crucially important personal, compassionate and holistic touch to an ever increasing technology focused care to allow patients and their families to maximise their potential to live, to experience, to love, to give...and ultimately to enjoy”.
