We have a range of facilities including hospitals, Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF), Multi-Purpose Sites (MPS) and community health sites. We also provide in-home care to approximately 9000 people living within our region through Country Health Connect.

Our work is guided by our Consumer and Community Engagement Strategy and Clinician and Workforce Engagement Strategy, which will sit alongside our inaugural Strategic Plain (launching soon).

The work of RMCLHN is overseen by our Governing Board, who are responsible for the overall governance and oversight of local service delivery by RMCLHN, including governance of performance and budget achievement, clinical governance, safety and quality, risk management and fulfilment of the Governing Board functions and responsibilities. The Governing Board is responsible and accountable to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing.

Our work is also supported by eight Health Advisory Councils, who provide a strong link between our communities and our health services.

Our Purpose

Our people caring for our communities.

Acknowledgement of the Traditional Custodians

RMCLHN respects and honours Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we live and work upon.

We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on this land and commit to building a brighter future together.

We acknowledge that ‘Aboriginal business is everyone’s business’ and we will work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to improve their health and wellbeing. We will work collectively with consumers and the community to ensure Aboriginal people get to enjoy the same, or better, health outcomes than the broader population.
