I had the best service ever in the Ararat hospital – ever.  Starting in the UCC then the ward.  I couldn’t have asked for better care.  Nothing was too much trouble.  100% grateful for the care I had.

To all the wonderful staff at Willaura hospital, we are so lucky to have each and everyone of you.  Thank you all so very much for the beautiful care and attention you gave to our father over the past few weeks.

Excellent care.  Staff tremendous, friendly and professional.  Couldn’t ask for anything better.

I received the best care that I have received in a very long time.  The friendly and caring behaviour from the nurses and doctors and staff was a refreshing change.  I felt better and healed better.  Thank you for your professionalism.

My mum was well looked after when she was having her procedure at your facility today.  Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

A very comforting and easy stay in hospital – reception and treatment were exceptional.  It will be a pity to stay injury free not to repeat the experience!

My experience at the Ararat hospital for cataract surgery was very positive.  I was very pleased with the attention and care I received.  All the staff were wonderful and very supportive of both  myself and my family members.

Everyone was very welcoming and kind, and were happy to answer any questions.  The room was very nice and clean and the nurses always made sure that I was comfortable.  Thank you to all the staff at EGHS.  You guys do a great job!

Very dedicated and professional staff, also very caring.  Ararat is so lucky to have them and so are the people.  I don’t think you could find better anywhere.

My mother was very happy with all staff working and the meals were very nice as well.  Keep up the good work and care.

Care was excellent and staff were courteous.  Food and meals are always first class.

Very satisfied with treatment received.  Staff were very obliging and caring.  Cannot think of any concerns.  Thankful to be able to attend a smaller health service than a larger hospital.
