The Inpatient Unit continues to be very busy accommodating medical, surgical, paediatric, midwifery and palliative care patients.



EGHS continues to accept a wide range of surgical patients with the visiting surgeons and our own on-site surgeons operating five days a week.

Our birth rate is increasing with many patients enjoying our wonderful birthing suite and we have been fortunate in attracting new midwifes to enhance our growing maternity service.  Once again, the Inpatient Unit has benefited from community support and donations enabling the purchase of new equipment.


The care I received was excellent.  From reception to discharge, all staff were friendly and helpful.  Well done EGHS.

The nurses and staff were very attentive, I couldn’t fault a thing.  I have nothing but praise for the hospital and staff.  We are very lucky in Ararat.

What a relaxing and wonderful experience having my baby at the Ararat hospital.  A massive thank you to the lovely midwives, the team during my surgery and the doctors.  A very friendly and professional workplace.

Excellent care from beginning to end.  All staff friendly, cheerful and professional.  Good food, scrupulously clean.  I felt cared for and safe.  Could not have asked for better care!

All staff were very caring and helpful.  Being an anxious patient they treated me really nicely.  Food was a good standard.

I cannot speak highly enough of the kindness and care I received whilst in hospital.  The staff were wonderful and the food provided was lovely.

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

Everybody connected with the hospital is to be highly commended.  Nothing was ever any trouble to anyone and everyone made my stay as comfortable as possible.  Many thanks to you all.
