About St Stephen's Hospital and UnitingCare Health

As one of four private hospitals of UnitingCare Health, St Stephen's Hospital in Hervey Bay is Australia's first fully-integrated digital hospital. Since October 2014 when the hospital opened, Fraser Coast residents have had access to one of the country's most advanced healthcare facilities. Prior to 2014, St Stephen's was located in Maryborough and had a proud history operating for over 100 years. The new $96-million facility is the first fully-integrated digital hospital to be opened in regional Australia, and is quickly transforming the quality of healthcare available to the Fraser Coast's growing population. St Stephen's Hospital provides a comprehensive range of inpatient medical services, as well day surgery. Part of UnitingCare Health, St Stephen's Hospital is a private healthcare provider owned by the Uniting Church, and is the only not-for-profit provider of private hospital services on the Fraser Coast.

UnitingCare Health also includes The Wesley Hospital and St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital in Brisbane, and ​Buderim Private Hospital on the Sunshine Coast and is therefore a significant provider of hospital and healthcare services in Queensland. Collectively, over 4,100 people are currently employed by UnitingCare Health, with approximately 100,000 patients treated annually.
