  • Our Vision, Mission & Values

    Our vision is for improved health and wellbeing for individuals and communities of the Upper Murray. We will achieve this by providing the best health care and community services possible and effectively engaging with our consumers, community and partners. Our mission is to promote wellness and health independence by providing quality services to meet the needs of our community. Our values will guide our behaviours and practices and hold us accountable to our community and ourselves. We value:

     Respect, care and compassion for our consumers, their families, our community, carers and staff.

     Connection with our community, keeping clients at the centre of what we do.  Innovation and change, continually improving our performance and efficiency and

    providing quality outcomes for our clients.  Professionalism and integrity, being open, ethical, fair and honest.  Accountability to our clients, our organisation and each other.

    Our History The origins of the Health Service date back to 1897 when plans to build the Corryong Cottage Hospital were conceived. In 1902 the foundation stone was laid for what then became known as the Victoria Cottage Hospital. In 1916 the foundation stone of the present hospital was laid. Over the years, the number of acute beds rose to its peak of forty-two in the 1960’s and on 5th November 1983 the Upper Murray Nursing Home, a 20-bed high aged care facility, was opened. In the early 1990’s the Agency took the opportunity to apply to be funded under the Multi-Purpose Program. This was to enable a more flexible and responsive service to be developed that would met the changing needs of our isolated rural community. In 1995 the Services was renamed Upper Murray Health & Community Services and commenced operation as a Multi-Purpose Service (MPS). Today, Upper Murray Health & Community Services is a highly integrated and considerably larger organisation providing a broad range of hospital, residential aged care, medical and primary health and community support services. The service also operates a Medical Clinic, Health and Fitness Centre, Retirement Village and the Australian Institute of Flexible Learning, which is a Registered Training Organisation. Our Health Service is truly responsive to the community’s needs. Responsible Ministers We acknowledge the assistance and direction of the Responsible Ministers during the reporting period.
