Over the years Sandringham Hospital has played a vital role in the community by providing exceptional and outstanding care that has earned it an enviable reputation as a community hospital.
Many of the original Fundraisers for the establishment of the Hospital in 1964 are still heavily involved in various Auxiliaries throughout the Hospital and continue to make an invaluable contribution.
In 1995, following the review of the Metropolitan Hospital Planning Board, the Hospital became a member of the Southern Health Care Network.
Since 2000, following the review by the Ministerial Review of Health Care Networks, Sandringham Hospital became part of Alfred Health, a Public Health Service that includes The Alfred & Caulfield Hospital.
Many of Sandringham Hospital's staff live in the local bayside community and we have a strong and dedicated Volunteer base whose time, energy and resources provide essential support to the hospital.
