HESTA invests our members’ super in ground-breaking health care businesses to create the highly skilled jobs of tomorrow.
Did you know that HESTA is one of the few super funds that specifically focuses on supporting the health sector? This includes investments that assist the development of exciting breakthroughs in new products and services. Your super investments may be supporting ground-breaking health care businesses to create the highly skilled jobs of tomorrow.
HESTA also supports the success of large, publicly listed health care companies through investing in their shares. Through your super, you could also be helping to build much-needed health infrastructure that will provide vital services to communities across Australia.
Building high-tech hospitals
Some of our investments in health infrastructure include providing debt finance. Current examples of this include supporting the construction of hospital facilities, like the Royal Adelaide Hospital and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC).
The purpose-built, state-of-the-art $1 billion VCCC supports patients and their families, and researchers focused on finding better treatments for cancer.
Some of our investment managers also invest on our members’ behalf in a range of small and growing health care companies. These private equity investments are designed to help small private companies not listed on the stock exchange to develop ideas for new products, services and technologies. They can also help grow established businesses with a proven track record of high performance.

Improving health care products and services
A vocational training and education provider is one example of a business we support that has a specific focus on improving health care services and products. This particular provider focuses on improving the quality and access to training for professionals in health and aged care, and other operators in the sector.
Another company is working to expand the availability of bulk billed in-home GP services, improving access to high-quality healthcare.
A better tomorrow
We know our members are passionate about what they do. That’s why we’re helping them build not only a better future for themselves, but for the next generation of health professionals – and for all Australians.
