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.


Was treated very well by nursing staff. They were very friendly and happy to help with any concerns I had.

I really enjoyed my time in Ararat thanks to the wonderful nursing staff that work there. All nurses have a brilliant array of knowledge that they were more than happy to share with me.

All my needs were attended to. Felt as though I was the only patient at times, because of the diligence and thoughtfulness of all the staff, medical and otherwise.

Thanking staff, nurses and doctors for taking care of me after my surgery and my two night stay in hospital. All were very caring and kind. Thanking you all.

Excellent service from doctors and nursing staff from when I arrived for surgery to when I left.

Cannot speak highly enough of the staff – doctors, nurses, domestic.

Many thanks to the caring staff at Ararat hospital. Everyone there is worth their weight in gold.
