Grampians Health

We service a vast region and our objective is to provide complete care as close as possible to people’s homes.

Our Campuses

Grampians Health Ballarat is the main public referral health service to the Grampians region of Victoria, with a catchment population of over 250,000 people. A teaching, training and research provider, we deliver care across all health settings, including: in home, community programs, aged care and all hospital admissions.

Grampians Health Ballarat is committed to providing excellence in care for its patients, staff and communities – with a vision to deliver world-class health care, an engaged workforce, effective leadership, and a strong connection to the community and region.

The quiet picturesque town of Dimboola is located on the banks of the Wimmera River and is the gateway to Victoria’s Little Desert. The Dimboola campus of Grampians Health provides a medical practice, allied health services, district nursing, a day centre and an aged care facility that can accommodate 26 aged care residents and four acute beds.

The bright modern building provides aged care facilities that support residents to maintain their independence and connections within the wider community. All rooms are on one level to allow for ease of access, ensuring quality and comfortable accommodation and care in a friendly home-like environment.

The Day Centre, District Nursing and Allied Health Services are located in the Alister Hinchley Wing which is connected to the aged care facility and to the John Pickering Medical Centre.

Grampians Health Edenhope is located in western Victoria almost on the South Australian border, and one hour south of the Western Highway from Kaniva.

Grampians Health Edenhope is a one-stop-shop for health care in the surrounding community and provides a range of on-site services or hosts visiting services. The aim is to provide as many services in the community as possible to minimise the amount of travel that people need to undertake to stay healthy.

Previously known as the Wimmera Health Care Group. Wimmera is a sub-region of the Grampians, 310 km west of Melbourne, 420 km east of Adelaide and in close proximity to the Grampians National Park.

It is the major specialist referral centre for the Wimmera and Southern-Mallee region of Victoria. Grampians Health Horsham and Dimboola combined service an area of 61,000 square kilometres and a population of approximately 54,000.

Grampians Health Horsham plays an important role in the education and training of health professionals, with the Wimmera Base Hospital recognised by universities and medical and nursing bodies as a training and teaching centre for undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

From its humble, yet ambitious beginnings on the Stawell goldfields more than 150 years ago, Grampians Health Stawell is today one of the Wimmera region’s most progressive health care providers.

Its success is built on a long history of forward-thinking medical practitioners and administrators, ongoing professional development, expanding facilities, strong community support and fruitful relationships with stakeholders.

Grampians Health Stawell offers a diverse range of integrated and related health services in a modern hospital, carried out by a cooperative team of medical professionals and visiting specialists.

“An immediate benefit of coming together as Grampians Health is that we have been able to think creatively about one of our biggest issues – accommodation – and work collaboratively with partners to get the project up and running.”
