About Us

West Gippsland Healthcare Group provides acute medical and surgical, obstetric, emergency, community and aged care services, primarily in the Shire of Baw Baw, approximately 100 kms east of Melbourne.

We operate from a number of sites. They are West Gippsland Hospital, Community Health Centres in Warragul, Trafalgar and Rawson, Cooinda Lodge and Andrews House aged care residences, and Warragul Linen Service.

Our history dates back to 1888 when the community established a hospital to service the area between Melbourne and Sale. A member of an early settler family, Mary Sargeant, donated the land on which West Gippsland Hospital, the main campus of the Group, now stands.

We have health service delivery responsibilities across a mixture of rural, urban residential and agricultural areas located within the Shire of Baw Baw, and draw clientele from the peripheral east and west of the shire. The Group services a primary catchment population of approximately 52,500. The administrative headquarters are located at West Gippsland Hospital in Warragul, the largest town in the West Gippsland area.

We enjoy close links with other healthcare providers including the Ambulance Service, general practitioners, residential aged care providers, the Baw Baw Shire, other public and private hospitals and a range of other healthcare professionals in private practice.
