The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) was formed on 1 January 2011, after the health entity known as South Eastern Sydney Illawarra Area Health Service was dissolved.

The catchment area extends about 250km along the coastal strip from Helensburgh in the north to North Durras in the south, servicing a population of more than 390,000 residents.

ISLHD is one of the region’s largest employers with a workforce of more than 7,300 across nine hospital sites and community health services with an annual budget of more than $770 million.

The vision for  Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District  "Working together building healthy futures" is underpinned by the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District Statement of Strategic Intent. It focuses on building the workforce of the future, developing an integrated health system, matching capital footprint to community needs and investing in contemporary patient-centred models of care.
