We are proudly a part of local history and today’s Macedon Ranges community of 46,000 people.
The people we serve and care for spread out across small settlements and nine towns, the largest being Gisborne, Kyneton, Romsey and Woodend. Most of our team lives around here.
About a third of our population lives out of town in a rural setting. But collectively, we’re also peri-urban community about halfway between Melbourne and Bendigo, with a growing population.
This means we’re a blend of long term locals, tree changers and a commuter population. The diversity of people is something KDH recognises, celebrates and supports.
KDH continues to find ways to connect and engage with our community. Building relationships and getting involved helps us to understand what our community needs and how we can help.
We also love to celebrate our community and the ways in which we come together – like our donate, plant gather, grow garden project planted in 2015, or education programs with local schools.
The KDH team hosts health information and promotion activities, and celebration events – like last year’s 100s and Thousands family get together or the art exhibition, When the Black Dog Bites, which supported conversations around mental health.
We actively seek input from consumers and create opportunities to hear from people rather than assume we know what you want (like our innovative Tea for Ten listening project).
We also collaborate with partners and have people on local committees so we can collectively work towards a better future.
KDH is your local hospital and health service. So your participation and support is warmly invited. You can become a volunteer, provide your ideas or feedback on your patient experience, or come along to our AGM or other events. Connect with us on social media.
