The Hospital cares for approximately 11,600 inpatients, makes nearly 28,000 community visits and sees more than 20,000 emergency presentations each year.

The administrative headquarters is located at West Gippsland Hospital in Warragul. Warragul is a 30 minute drive from Pakenham along the freeway – against the traffic! And with FREE PARKING!  We also offer Salary packaging to help lessen the amount of tax you pay on your income. We are the largest employer in Warragul and are committed to building on our organisation’s strengths by welcoming people with our shared values of Respect, Accountability, Leadership, Collaboration and Improvement. Staff and community engagement are pivotal in ensuring we provide high quality healthcare at all times.

We are well aware our hospital is aging but are excited at the news that our new state of the art hospital and public aged care facility is coming. A 23.6 hectare site at Lardners Track in Drouin East was acquired by West Gippsland Healthcare Group for a future hospital back in 2007. The new hospital is set to feature 233-beds and 33 emergency department treatment spaces as well as aged care and an expanded maternity facility. We pride ourselves on the quality of care that’s delivered by our incredible staff. You won’t find a more friendly and welcoming team than the West Gippsland Healthcare Group.
