About the board

Kyabram District Health Service provides an integrated range of acute, subacute, residential aged care and allied and primary health care services. Kyabram District Health Service has been providing services to the community since 1933.

Kyabram District Health Service fosters an “experience” led approach to the provision of care and services through the development of key core values that underpin the patient's expectations. The values of caring, inclusive, accountable, versatile and collaborative are core to our approach to care.

Kyabram District Health Service has a strong commitment to ensure that the clinical governance processes that oversee our clinical service delivery are robust and effective in the review and ongoing provision of care. This is achieved through such initiatives as: the establishment of an external clinical service review program; the setting of tolerance and control measures for Key Performance Indicator reporting, and its determination to seek a greater focus towards hearing from the patient's voice.
