History of Sydney Local Health District

Sydney Local Health District was established as a legal entity on 1 July, 2011 as part of the National Health Reform process. It marked the beginning of a new era in healthcare delivery in NSW. The change to the Local Health District followed a transition from Sydney South West Area Health Service to the Sydney Local Health Network in January 2011, ahead of the final transition to a Local Health District with its own Board.

Through its hospitals, clinical and support services, the staff in Sydney Local Health District have a proud history of caring for our patients. Our vision is excellence in health and healthcare for all.
