Since 1895 the Sisters in Australia have provided excellent healthcare facilities across the continent of Australia. In 1989, the Sisters established the St John of God Health Care System, where all of their facilities were brought together under a central management structure. In 2004, recognizing that their ongoing ability to govern St John of God Health Care was finite, the Sisters established St John of God Australia Limited to ensure, as far as possible, that their health care ministry would thrive into the future. This ministry continues today under a committed lay leadership and St John of God Health Care is now one of the largest Catholic providers of health care services in Australia.
The Broome Heritage Centre is a place for the sharing of social history related to the Sisters of St John of God and Aboriginal people of the Kimberley. It fosters healing relationships between indigenous people through storytelling and the provision of historical resources.
The Open Door offers a safe space for people to explore contemplative spirituality in an environment that nurtures questions of faith and practice without fear of judgement.
The Retreat Centre creates a contemplative environment where individuals and groups can enjoy space and time for prayer and reflection. There is also an opportunity for people to deepen their relationship with God through retreats that are offered there.
A major contribution of the Sisters today is their Ministry Initiative grants project. Working in partnership with other organisations the Sisters sponsor and support a wide variety of charities focussing on the homeless, particularly vulnerable women and children, refugees and asylum seekers - in Western Australia and Victoria.
