Please support your health service

Community is at the heart of what we do at Central Highlands Rural Health. For more than 150 years, we have been supported by the generosity of those who contribute their time and money to ensure that we can best meet the health challenges of our local communities.

Although Central Highlands Rural Health does receive government funding, donations enable us to expand our programs and services, build new infrastructure and purchase the latest medical equipment that would otherwise not be possible.

There are many different ways that you can support Central Highlands Rural Health in delivering care to your community. To discuss any of the options, please contact the Manager Fundraising, Events & Marketing on (03) 5321 6542 or email
