Marillac House

Marillac House commenced operation in 2007 as a special work of the St Vincent de Paul Society. It was identified by Society members and the community that the provision of low-cost accommodation and support was greatly lacking for hospital patients, their families and carers. It was identified that those travelling quite long distances to access health services were the greatest affected. People living on King and Flinders Island, the far west coast, northwest and east coast of Tasmania were impacted the most.

Our objectives are:

  • To assist patients, carers and family members in times of health crisis, accommodating those people who are undergoing surgery, specialised treatment, emergency care and rehabilitation.
  • To provide homely, low cost accommodation a supportive and caring environment.
  • To provide our service in a confidential, respectful and caring manner.
