From humble beginnings to care provider of thousands.
United by our passion and commitment to make a difference, Southern Cross Care (WA) has been improving the lives of people in greatest need for more than 50 years.
SCC (WA) was founded in 1966 by a small group of men from the Order of the Knights of the Southern Cross. With a desire to serve the community and meet the growing health care needs of the elderly and vulnerable, the Knights mortgaged their houses and established SCC (WA). Now more than five decades later, the legacy of the Knights lives on as SCC (WA) continues to support the complex health, care and accommodation needs of our aging population and those living with mental illness.
Making a meaningful difference in people’s lives is made possible by our dedicated workforce of over 900 employees and 170 volunteers. From nurses and care staff working on the frontline to those behind the scenes in leadership and support roles, our employees are driven by a shared desire to make a tangible impact on the lives of those who once cared for us.
Whether living independently in their own home, in one of our retirement villages or needing a higher level of physical or mental health care, our aim is to help our residents and clients feel happy, supported, and cared for while maintaining dignity and choice in their life journey.
