Reconciliation is about building better relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for the benefit of all Australians.

Healthscope acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Lands upon which we operate across Australia.

As the continuing custodians of Country, we recognise their ongoing connection to land, waters and community and pay our respects to Australia’s First Peoples and their Elders, past, present and future.

Our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

We launched our Innovate Reconciliation Plan (RAP) in February 2024. Healthscope’s Reconciliation Action Plan provides a formal
framework to guide our reconciliation activities over the next 12 months. Our “Innovate” RAP has four key objectives:

Karen Lee Mungarrja, a Wiradjuri artist of the Tubba-Gah clan, Dubbo, NSW, created the artwork ‘Murungidyal’ The Healing that is featured in the RAP.

In Karen’s words: “This artwork tells a story representing the values of Healthscope and the importance of community in the journey of care. The Boab tree represents healing, respect and individuality.

The Eucalyptus leaves are a representation of their use in Smoking Ceremony to welcome people and their use as bush medicine to heal. 

Meeting circles represent both the community and the staff that come together to provide care. The Journey symbol represents both the diversity of people who come to Healthscope and the journey of their healthcare. "The Rainbows are the symbol of hope”.
