About St John of God Burwood Hospital

St John of God Burwood Hospital is a 95-bed private mental health hospital providing comprehensive mental health care services.

At St John of God Burwood Hospital we provide a diverse range of specialised psychiatric programs and services for inpatients, day patients and outpatients including:

Our committed team of psychiatrists, psychologists, specialist mental health nurses, and other allied health professionals recognise you as an individual and tailor programs specifically to your needs to help you return to a rewarding and fulfilling life.

Specialised medical consulting rooms are located adjacent to the hospital in our Medical Centre where our consultant psychiatrists offer treatments such as medication, cognitive behavioural therapy and other psychotherapies to treat the entire range of psychiatric disorders.

Co-located with the hospital is our purpose-built Counselling and Therapy Centre (CTC) for outpatients and day patients where we provide holistic, professional and compassionate care for mental health needs in a safe, relaxed and caring environment. 

St John of God Burwood Hospital is a division of St John of God Health Care, a leading Catholic not-for-profit health care group, serving communities with hospitals, home nursing, and social outreach services throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Community and social outreach

We provide support to our local community through our social outreach programs, including Casa Venegas, an outreach service for people with enduring mental health problems who are experiencing homelessness, as well as partnering with Waminda to support Aboriginal women.

Casa Venegas

Casa Venegas provides medium term accommodation to people with enduring mental health issues in western and inner Sydney.

People with mental health issues are one of the most disadvantage groups in society and make up a big part of our homeless population.

Our service helps people with enduring mental health issues who are homeless transition to independent living through a recovery-based framework approach.


We partner with Waminda, a community-based Aboriginal organisation, to fund women’s gatherings in Nowra and participate in cultural exchanges.

Waminda provides a range of health care and wellbeing support programs to Aboriginal women and their families living along the south coast of New South Wales.
