About > Our Organisation
Created as a result of the amalgamation of Korumburra District Hospital and Woorayl and District Memorial Hospital in 1992, Gippsland Southern Health Service (GSHS) provides a comprehensive range of Specialist General, Acute, Aged and Residential, Allied Health and Community Services to the residents of the Shire of South Gippsland.
GSHS is funded primarily through the Victorian Department of Health and the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing. It operates under the direction of the Minister for Health, Minister for Aged Care state-wide and nationally the Minister for Health and the Minister for Ageing.
GSHS relies on the generosity of patients and clients (past and present), individual donors, community groups and corporate supporters to supplement government funding in order to ensure that vital improvements are made to benefit patient care.
