EDMH Medical Clinic

The new Medical Clinic was completed in August 2012 to provide modern amenities for Doctors and patients and is a much utilised facility with many patients accessing the medical services provided.

To support our Doctor a residence has been built on land purchased in Wannon Avenue. The 4 bedroom home will continue to place EDMH in a strong position to offer present and future Doctors an attractive package. The home was finished in June and our doctor has taken residence.

Future projects include the building of a storage shed on our Mollison street site behind the Barkala Flats which will also have an enclosed area for our archives. Funding for this project was received from the Department of Health, Rural Capital Support Fund 2012/13

Workforce Accommodation

In May 2016 the doors of the new staff accommodation buildings were officially opened by Mr James Purcell MP. Located opposite the Hospital in Elizabeth street the staff accommodation includes two buildings. Baroona House, the 3 bedroom Doctor's residence and Minogue Place for visiting specialists and staff.  Minogue Place is made up of 10 bedrooms with individual ensuite bathrooms with shared kitchen and living areas, also included is a self contained one bedroom flat for use by professional staff with a need for higher levels of privacy.

EDMH has up to five staff members who live outside of our region and choose to travel to Edenhope to work. In addition there are a number of staff who travel more than 50kms to and from work along rural roads and who elect to occasionally stay overnight between late and early shifts to avoid driving dangers of fatigue, wildlife, adverse weather or for personal reasons.

The new complex will help deliver on a number of key goals of the Hospital's strategic plan:

  • Deliver the best quality care for our community
  • Develop a workforces that meets current and future needs
  • Increase our range of services

The complex was designed by Chris Steele Designs of Warrnambool with the building co-ordinated by Craig Collins Building of Hamilton, with many local traders assisting.
