Hospitals and Clinics

The Adventist Church operates more than 170 hospitals around the world. Whatever and wherever they are - private hospitals in metropolitan areas or mission hospitals in rural areas - Adventist hospitals all serve the same purpose: "to make people whole."

In the South Pacific, Sydney Adventist Hospital has been serving its community for more than 100 years; Atoifi Adventist Hospital in the Solomon Islands for the past 38 years.

The church also operates clinics and health centres in remote areas of the South Pacific - mainly in Papua New Guinea and in the Solomons - providing a positive difference to community health.
