Established in 1966 by our founders, the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary, Calvary Health Care Kogarah provides public hospital services under a Service Level Agreement with the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District and is an Australian Council of Healthcare Standards accredited hospital.

Calvary Health Care Kogarah is built on a former orchard site, on land owned by the Fitzgerald Family. The land was bequeathed by the Fitzgerald Family to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney to establish a hospital catering to people of all faiths. Calvary Health Care Kogarah began its work in 1966 as a Hospice for the terminally ill under the care of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary.

A day hospital and a bereavement service were opened in 1981. In 1984 an administration wing was built, with further extensions opened in 1991 to provide accommodation for the Calvary community palliative care team and a pain clinic for outpatients. In 1991 the hospital became an associated teaching hospital of the University of New South Wales.

Calvary Health Care Kogarah embraced a new focus of care in 1994. In addition to continuing to provide its excellent palliative care service, a 16 bed rehabilitation inpatient unit was commenced, in consultation with the local area health service, in order to meet the needs of the growing number of patients requiring rehabilitation.

1995 saw us welcome the rehabilitation aged care service to the Calvary Health Care Kogarah site. Since that time the rehabilitation and aged care service has expanded to include the transitional aged Care service; continence advisory service; podiatry; memory clinic; motor neurone disease clinic; and community aged care rehabilitation.

Further extensive renovations were completed in 2001.

The day rehabilitation gymnasium andhydrotherapy pool were opened in 2009 and internal renovations to the Chapel of the Resurrection were completed.

In 2026 Calvary Health Care Kogarah, now part of the Little Company of Mary Health Care Group, will celebrate 60 years since its foundation.

Extensive upgrades were recently undertaken to our inpatient rooms in both the palliative care and rehabilitation units offering out patients improved surroundings and privacy.
