Maldon Hospital services the township and outlying areas of Maldon with a population of approximately 1600 permanent residents.
The Hospital is located in a picturesque setting part way up Mount Tarrangower, as it was the custom in past years to locate hospitals on high points as these locations were always healthier. This location gives residents sitting in the front garden of the Hospital a panoramic view of the surrounding country.
The historic Maldon Hospital was established in a small wooden building in 1859. In 1860 the single building that was the Men’s Ward was constructed, later in 1862 a Woman’s Ward was added and then the central Administrative Block in 1867. Further additions and a major restoration have created a modern Hospital that provides residential aged care facilities, acute care, a medical service and additional health services.
Maldon Hospital supports residents to live their life with purpose and meaning which reflects their interests. We support a person-centered approach to care delivery as can be heard on the ABC interview – Maldon Hospital – ABC Central Radio Story.
