Nagambie Hospital & Lakeview Lodge

 

This project was part of the Commonwealth’s 2000/01 Regional Health Strategy to improve health services for people in rural, regional and remote areas. We performed a detailed analysis of the present viability of the Nagambie Hospital (15 beds) and Lakeview Lodge (21 aged care low care beds), reviewed the appropriateness of the current reporting and management arrangements, and examined the utilisation of government funding. We also provided practical recommendations to improve service delivery, reporting and management and cost effectiveness and financial viability of the service. We consulted with Government, members of the Board, staff, local General Practitioners and other health professionals.
