Heyfield is a small rural community 200+ km south east of Melbourne. The Heyfield Medical Centre provides the highest standard of patient care and medical services to over 3,000 patients and is located half an hour from the large regional centres of Traralgon and Sale.
Near Lake Glenmaggie on the road to Licola and the High Country the doctors at HMC run as an acute care practice incorporating a holistic approach toward diagnosis and management of illness.
The Practice is co-located with Heyfield Hospital that offers 10 standard beds, 52 beds of aged care (30 low care and 22 high care). The hospital is a private not-for-profit community owned facility.
The Practice recently conducted a Patient Survey and we would like to thank all our patients who contributed.
The Practice, as a whole reviewed the responses from the Survey and advise of the following:
Home visits are performed when necessary i.e. the patient is too sick to come in, or other special circumstances and requests for visits should be directed to the Practice Nurse as soon after 9am as possible.
The Practice provides an after hours service at the Heyfield Hospital. For urgent problems patients are requested to ring the Hospital on 51397979 to access this service. (Due to covid there have been limitations in running this Service due to its proximity with the Nursing Home.
The Doctors of this Practice try to provide continuity of care to their regular patients, but can be booked out for a considerable amount of time. There are many occasions when a patient may have to see another doctor as their availability may be better.
