We are a Victorian public sector health service created under the Health Services Act and are responsible to the Minister for Health.
The key focus of our work at Rural Northwest Health is caring and supporting people to be healthy and live a full life. This is represented by our logo, which depicts a carer reaching out and embracing its community over the broad horizon. We provide care and programs with wide reaching community support and a warm and comforting approach.
Who We Serve
The population of the communities served by us is about 6,674 within the Yarriambiack Shire (ABS Census data 2016). Rural Northwest Health covers the northern part of the Shire and shares the southern part with Dunmunkle Health Services. Between our three campuses at Warracknabeal, Beulah, and Hopetoun, we provide a comprehensive range of acute, aged, and primary health services to the local community.
Rural Northwest Health is committed to achieving the best health for the Wimmera Mallee community. We recognise our clients and residents’ total needs in order for them to achieve optimal health and wellbeing outcomes. We believe that our clients and residents are entitled to quality health care that respects their dignity, beliefs, and rights regardless of their cultural, spiritual, or socio-economic background.
Moving together through change to provide innovative rural health care.
Rural Northwest Health will provide accessible, efficient and excellent care to our community within the Wimmera Mallee Region.
