To Your Good Health in Kilmore

The range of health services available in Kilmore is probably unrivalled in any other Victorian country town.

Facilities are centred around Kilmore's 30-bed acute nursing hospital, with a modern surgical suite for day procedures and a recently opened obstetrics unit. Nearby is Caldenia, a 30 bed aged nursing home and also the recently opened Dianella Village, a 30 bed aged hostel.

Some thirty specialist, surgical and general medical practitioners have been appointed to the Kilmore Hospital to provide a wide spectrum of medical services. The most recently appointed being: an oncologist to supervise inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy; a dietician to provide specificic dietary advice; and a social worker.

Expanded diagnostic services include: endoscopy; pathology; X-Ray, Imaging, Ultrasound and CAT Scan facilities.

A 24-Hour Emergency Department is provided with an 'on call' doctor.

It is important that we are aware of these unique assets and support and promote them to the wider community. Accordingly this Directory is produced as a community resource.

The Institute does not necessarily endorse the services offered, nor is it liable or responsible for this information, but it would welcome any feedback as to omissions and corrections. It suggests you obtain a quotation from the service provider prior to making any substantial financial commitment.
