Kyneton Health at Central Highlands Rural Health offers a comprehensive range of hospital and community-based services.
We are proud of our place within the community, having served the people of the Macedon Ranges for more than 160 years. From our original bluestone hospital on Wedge Street in 1854, to the purpose built modern hospital in Caroline Chisholm Drive that opened in 2003, we continue to respond to the needs of our local community, collaborating with healthcare partners to deliver Best Care to our patients.
Visit our Coronavirus webpage for more information, including opening hours during the Christmas and New Year holiday.
Our hospital services include a 24/7 urgent care centre, 27-bed overnight acute ward, two operating theatres, dialysis and oncology services. We have a dedicated palliative care suite where families can stay while we look after their loved one at the end of life. We also have two palliative respite beds that can be booked to give carers a break for up to two weeks.
The visiting hours for Kyneton Health’s acute ward is 8am – 8pm. Density limits apply (based upon room size), so all visitors are advised to call ahead.
