Rural Northwest Health will provide accessible, efficient and excellent care to our community within the Wimmera Mallee Region.

About our Organisation

Rural Northwest Health is a Victorian public sector health service created under the Health Services Act and responsible to the Minister for Health. 
The population of the communities served by Rural Northwest Health is about 4866 people (ABS Census data 2006) within the Yarriambiack Shire. 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.

The key focus of Rural Northwest Health is caring and supporting people to be healthy and living a full life. Our logo represents this by the carer reaching out and embracing its community over the broad horizon. Our staff provides care and programs that offer wide reaching community support and a warm and comforting approach.

Rural Northwest Health is committed to achieving the best health for the Wimmera Mallee community. We recognise our client’s/resident’s total needs in order for them to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. We believe that our clients/residents are entitled to quality health care that respects their dignity, beliefs and rights regardless of their cultural, spiritual or socio-economic background.
