About Ballan District Health & Care

Ballan District Health & Care – located between Melbourne and Ballarat along the Western Highway – is a rural healthcare provider to the residents of Ballan and surrounding Districts.

Employing more than 170 people and supported by more than 70 volunteers (Annual Report 2017/2018), Ballan District Health & Care  provides an integrated single-site model of care: offering primary healthcare, hospital, aged care, rehabilitation services, welfare and wellness services.

Ballan District Health & Care commenced operations in 1966 as a six-bed Soldiers’ Memorial Bush Nursing Hospital. The Hospital opening represented a significant community achievement. Many local people had made the Ballan Hospital their life’s work.

BDHC remains a Soldiers’ Memorial Bush Nursing Hospital, is owned by the community through the Ballan Hospital Association and is a registered charity with the ACNC. Many local people, including staff members and volunteers, continue to make the organisation their life’s work: to the benefit of the people of Ballan and surrounding Districts.

Our vision is to be a dynamic leader in rural healthcare. Our mission is to be committed in partnering to deliver high quality integrated health and wellbeing services. Below are our Strategic Pillars for 2019.
