Our community

Our community:

  • is experiencing rapid population growth in the South East of our catchment – increasing by more than 450 new residents a week *
  • has older established communities in Kingston and Monash
  • has population groups who are disadvantaged in their ability to access services (cultural, linguistic, socio-economic)

People using our services are born in more than 180 different countries, speaking 100 different languages.

We celebrate our multicultural community as the source of both our consumers and our staff. Consultation with our consumers, carers and the community plays a significant role in the improvement of our health service.  

* All catchment figures based on Australian Bureau of Statistics
Estimated Residential Population as at 30 June 2008
