New Clinical Services Plan for Bass Coast Health

Posted 07 April 2016

Bass Coast Health - the area's major public healthcare provider offering a broad range of specialist medical, surgical, obstetric and aged care services -  has received the good news it has received funding for a much-needed Clinical Services Plan to meet the healthcare needs of the local community.

 VHA CEO Tom Symondson met with BCH interim CEO Jan Child at Wonthaggi Hospital this week.

"It was an excellent opportunity to see the busy health service close up," he said. "I could see their Emergency Department, in particular, had done a sterling job over an unusually hectic Easter," he said today.

 BCH is an  integrated health service providing acute, sub-acute, ancillary medical, aged and ambulatory care at Wonthaggi, San Remo, Inverloch, Grantville, Corinella and Cowes.
