Who we are

A woman answers the phone at the St Stephen’s Hospital reception desk, while a staff member waits.

As Australia’s first fully integrated digital hospital, St Stephen’s gives the Wide Bay community access to one of the country’s most advanced healthcare facilities. Yet in the midst of this state-of-the-art facility, it’s our commitment to person-centred care that truly sets us apart.

St Stephen’s has a long history within the Wide Bay community. From our origins as a local centre caring for local people, we’ve developed into an innovative not-for-profit regional hospital. A hospital that still puts the community we serve at the core of everything we do.

Today we provide holistic care to local, regional and interstate patients and their families.

We’re small enough to provide individualised care from our team of specialists, nurses and allied health staff but large enough to cover a majority of health care needs. This includes:

With spacious rooms and the most caring environment, St Stephen’s provides a comprehensive range of inpatient medical and surgical services. We’re able to serve you by offering access to experienced specialists with minimal waiting.
