To be leaders in providing far reaching healthcare.

Our vision statement informs our staff, consumers and partners of the opportunity our organisation has to provide safe and quality healthcare services to people across our vast geographical region.

Delivering health services to sparsely populated communities across the Central West area requires innovation, dedication and resourcefulness on the part of all involved and our unique people and places certainly deserve our collective aim to be leaders in our field.


To draw on the resilience and resourcefulness of our experienced and committed people, and for us to work together to overcome distance.

Working with our partners within and outside the healthcare system to make a difference in the lives of the people in our care. We combine our knowledge and experience with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Whether it is championing proactive health programs for our many communities or enhancing our emergency responsiveness, we are dedicated to delivering the best possible results.
