Our 
Story

In the beginning 

Formed in Victoria in 1949, the Hospital Engineers Institute was created 'as Hospitals become more mechanized, it is obvious that discussions between Engineers - where experience can be passed on - methods and equipment freely discussed, will be a great assistance to Hospitals'.

The first conference was held in Sydney, July 1953 to discuss 'standardization of Hospital Equipment' and the first Hospital Magazine was printed 1951.

We believe that a safe and healthy healthcare environment is the foundation of patient care, and a well-designed and maintained healthcare facility is essential for the delivery of quality clinical services.

Our Mission
