The Health Service:

Grampians Health (GH) was established on 1 November 2021, bringing together Edenhope & District Memorial Hospital (EDMH), Stawell Regional Health (SRH), Wimmera Health Care Group (WHCG) and Ballarat Health Services (BHS) to provide high quality and accessible health care services in each of the communities we serve.


We believe our communities deserve safe, sustainable healthcare tailored to changing workforce and community needs, for the long term. Together we are working to find a better way to deliver:

  • improved quality and utilisation of services
  • increased long term sustainability across all services
  • improved opportunities for recruiting, developing and retaining health workforces
  • higher quality care, safer practices and better systems, and
  • further community trust and engagement in local health services.


Stawell Medical Centre is a busy rural practice with a large patient base which provides services in the general practice setting and aged care facilities. Working at the Urgent Care Centre is also available.


The practice is a part of Grampians Health Stawell which affords excellent access to all of the facilities the hospital has to offer; including

The Practice is fully accredited with AGPAL, has teaching accreditation with both ACRRM and RACGP and has medical students from Deakin University.  We have well equipped consulting and treatments rooms which are supported by a team of amazing practice nurses, administration staff and a practice manager.  A number of visiting specialists and surgeons work from the hospital providing a wide range of services.

The position could be well-suited to a GP who is looking for a change of life-style at the foot of the beautiful Grampians where hiking, bush-walking, majestic views, wineries and fabulous diversity are at your doorstep.  A healthy place to raise a family or work towards your retirement in a less stressful environment.  Quality real estate is just a fraction of city prices; own your own piece of rural lifestyle!
