At Orbost Regional Health we are proud that this innovative Multi Purpose Service has the capacity (through our flexible funding) to embrace a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. We provide not only the Acute and Aged Care facilities, for which we are well known, but also many other services to maintain the physical and mental well being of the community.
Through regular community consultation, eg: Community Needs Survey, forums, patient & satisfaction surveys, and of course our new 'Conversations with the Community' project, we are able to provide the services the community deems most important. For example Dental, Youth and Women's Health services are a few of the services implemented due to community requests.
ORH services a vast area of 1 million square hectares with many ‘Outreach' services, so flexibility is the key to meeting the differing needs of remote rural clients as well as the needs of the immediate community.
