The organisation provides services in emergency, maternity, women’s health, medical imaging, pathology, rehabilitation, community services, residential aged care, psychiatric care, community dental, hospice, palliative care, cardiology, cancer services and renal dialysis to the people of the Loddon Mallee region.
In addition to operating a large acute hospital we offer subacute services including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, a regional psychiatric service, residential care, specialist clinics, dialysis and a range of outreach services such as hospital in the home.
A 724-bed service, Bendigo Health treats more than 49,000 inpatients, deals with more than 52,000 emergency attendances, delivers around 1,400 babies and takes more than 110,000 medical images each year.
These services are complemented by an integrated Cancer Centre, which administers around 9000 chemotherapy treatments each year, an 80-bed Psychiatry Unit and 11 operating theatres where almost 15,000 surgical procedures are performed annually.
Kirkland Lake Gold will support the Cancer Wellness Program for the next three years.
The on-call weekend heart attack service has been used 109 times in its first 12 months of operations.
Bendigo Health’s annual Christmas Appeal provides the opportunity to raise much needed funds for specialised equipment and programs to cater for the ever growing demands of our regional hospital.
We value feedback from patients, family members and carers.
