Introducing our new partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne

Bank First is proud to announce the launch of our new partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, through the Bank First Community Fund.

The partnership will support the vital work of all St Vincent's hospitals and health services in Victoria, championing their ongoing contribution to the community. This includes supporting their annual staff awards, and staff scholarships program – creating opportunities for their future leaders in healthcare.

St Vincent’s is one of Victoria’s most respected health care providers, providing emergency and medical services, aged care, mental health, palliative and residential care to thousands of patients each year.

Bank First CEO, Michelle Bagnall said, “Bank First is a culture of uncommon humanity and genuine care for our Members, and we are committed to nurturing partnerships that share these same values. We can already see this in St Vincent’s and the way these values are lived every day. We are genuinely excited about this partnership and what it could mean for all our people and the Members we serve.”

Supporting the communities who support others has always been a core focus for Bank First. We were founded in 1972 when a group of 48 educators came together with a shared belief that financial institutions should value how people contribute to the community – not simply how much money they make. Today we are still driven by our founding values of care and compassion, and we exist to financially empower educators and healthcare professionals.

Through the Bank First Community Fund we provide a range of awards, sponsorships, partnerships and grants to help educators and healthcare professionals thrive and inspire others. Find out more about how we support the community here.
