It’s important to remember to look after your health and well being more so than ever and not ignore something minor if you are concerned. In looking at our Urgent Care Centre data over the last month, we have noticed a little increase in people presenting with Cardiac pain and symptoms, so just popping this up there as a guide. If you are unsure, get help and advice, even if it’s just something minor, before it turns into something bigger. 😊👍 ... See MoreSee Less

Our thanks to all our Residents, families and staff in what has been a tough month with the 2nd wave of Covid concern. With over 120 aged care facilities affected across the state, we are extremely grateful to the community in keeping rates of positive Covid cases to 0 in our region over the last month. Whilst rates and community transmission are still evident, we are seeing a trend of decline across the state, but still a significantly horrible outcome for those exposed and infected by the Covid-19 virus, particularly in the residential aged care sector.Just an update that once again, to protect our staff, patients and the wider community, we are advising that we will be continuing our current process of restricting non-essential visitors to Cohuna District Hospital and our aged care facility for another week with the view to re-introducing a daily visit from next weekend if the trend continues to decline and those infected continue to recover without further increased community transmission. Its tough, but the cost is to big to make a step forward to soon as we have seen over the last 5 months.Please note: Midwifery restrictions remain unchanged, with only the partner/support person able to be present in the ward throughout the full hospital admission, while patients in the Urgent Care Centre can have one support person.Visitors may only be allowed on compassionate grounds which will be at the discretion of the nurse manager of the relevant unit. You can however visit the site and interact through the windows, it’s not the same but it brightens our residents and patients day to at least see and speak with their loved ones.As the health of our staff, patients, visitors and community remains our biggest priority we have left this measure in place so we can continue to provide the highest level of care in this uncertain phase. You can help us in the region by doing your part too: Wash your hands, wear your mask in public and get tested if you have any symptoms.Please visit our website for further details or call us on 54 565 300. ...
