About Us

West Wimmera Health Service provides high-quality hospital care, residential aged care, disability services and community health facilities to more than 16,000 people in the West Wimmera region.

We deliver services that are compassionate, responsive, accessible and accountable to individual and community needs and which are designed to achieve quality outcomes.

A key focus in our pursuit of excellence is to embrace innovation and technology to overcome the disadvantages of remoteness in the rural areas in which we operate.

Our area covers 22,000 square kilometres including the towns of Nhill, Goroke, Jeparit, Kaniva, Minyip, Murtoa, Rainbow and Rupanyup and is close to internationally renowned National Parks including The Little Desert, the Grampians and Mount Arapiles the picturesque Lake Marma and the amazing Stick Shed (a massive Grain Store built using 560 tree trunks) at Murtoa.

West Wimmera Health Service is fully accredited across all disciplines including acute inpatient, residential aged care, primary and community health, home and community care including district nursing and planned activity group, disability services and radiography, providing evidence that quality care with a focus on continual improvement is practiced throughout our Service.
