Central Highlands Rural Health has released a short video to promote the wide range of services on offer from the regional health service in the Macedon Ranges and Hepburn Shire.

The video focuses on services at all five campuses – Clunes, Creswick, Daylesford, Kyneton and Trentham – as well as community-based programs delivered by the Community Health and Community Nursing teams.

From services for newborns in Maternal and Child Health, right through to Aged Care, the video showcases Central Highlands Rural Health’s integrated approach to localised healthcare, providing every person with the best possible care, close to home.

The video features a touching moment between aged care resident Gloria McCarthy and her daughter Vicki Gunnser, who is a Hotel Services Supervisor at Daylesford Aged Care.

“It was a bit of fun being filmed for the video. Our family have lived locally all our lives and I’m really proud that mum and I could be a part of the video that celebrates the great work we do here at Central Highlands Rural Health,’ Ms Gunnser said.

The video includes footage of the newly renovated Dementia Friendly Aged Care Unit in Creswick, Acute and Surgical Services in Kyneton and Daylesford, Aged Care in Daylesford and Trentham, Community Health Services across the Hepburn Shire, and Community Nursing and Home Care Packages across the region.

Central Highlands Rural Health CEO Maree Cuddihy said, “We’re really pleased to launch this video which marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of local health services in our region. Central Highlands Rural Health formed just before COVID hit, so we were a bit preoccupied for a while there, but it’s fantastic that we can now finally share this video with our community to showcase the high-quality care we provide our clients, patients, residents and their families.”

The video runs for four minutes and can be viewed online at Central Highlands Rural Health’s website, as well via their social media channels.

“Hopefully the video gives everyone a taste of the kind of services we offer. There is so much more we could have covered so we hope that once people have watched it, they’ll take the time to have a look around our website to learn more about our services,” Ms Cuddihy said.
