Kilmore District Health provides a comprehensive range of acute and aged care services to our rapidly increasing catchment population. Inpatient and outpatient services are offered to the community of Kilmore and district.
Hospital Based Services
Our hospital services range from acute services in the areas of maternity, medical and surgical services, through to subacute care encompassing Geriatric Evaluation and Management, Transition Care and Palliative Care. The number and range of Visiting Specialists consulting from our Outpatient Facility continues to expand.
As the only provider of maternity services located in the Mitchell Shire, the hospital supports over 300 women and families assessed as having a normal risk pregnancy to receive maternity (antenatal, birthing and postnatal) care close to home.
Our 24-hour Urgent Care Centre is attended by highly skilled and experienced nursing staff. Staff collaborate with local GPs, in providing first line care to all urgent attendances, and with Ambulance Victoria and receiving hospitals to stabilise and coordinate transfer to a higher level of care, where necessary.
Aged Care Services
Caladenia Nursing Home and Dianella Village Hostel provide a home-like atmosphere with the security of assistance when required. Each facility has the capacity to support 30 care recipients. Respite care is also available.
Home Based Services
The District Nursing Service is funded through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). This service helps older people stay independent and, in their homes, and communities for longer. We also receive state-based funding to provide support to younger people with disabilities living at home and produce delivered meals through the Victorian Home and Community Care program.
