Creswick Acute Hospital – The nursing, medical and allied health teams at Creswick Hospital collaborate to provide quality care to the local community and surrounding areas. Doctors from Creswick Medical Centre visit Monday to Friday and provide an after-hours on-call service to ensure continuity of care and services.
The hospitals 10 bed unit provides sub-acute care as well as supportive care through the Transition Care Program (TCP). TCP supports people following an acute hospital episode who require more time to optimise their functional capacity or finalise their longer term care arrangements.
The high quality palliative care provided at Creswick has recently been enhanced by improvements to the dedicated palliative care room through a private donation. Research indicates the value and importance of creating a home-like, peaceful environment for end of life care.
A less institutional, warm welcoming room can empower patients, reduce stress and improve perceptions of care.
A Small home of only 30 beds, single and double rooms are available for permanent and respite care. There are no restrictions on visiting hours and car parking is free. The home is co-located with Creswick Hospital and there is 24 hour nursing and medical cover, couples accommodation, a secure garden, facility transport and access to many specialist services. There is an active lifestyle program and residents are encouraged and supported to maintain their social links with their friends, family and community. Hepburn Health has the Rainbow Tick accreditation.

Creswick Nursing Home has received funding through the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund to re-develop and upgrade the facility. The works will see the four of the current double bedrooms converted to single rooms with ensuites, the development of dedicated dining, lounge and activity spaces and the inclusion of an internal courtyard to allow natural light into the facility and provide safe access to an outside space for residents. These works will enhance the living experience for our residents and provide a comfortable, inviting environment for staff and visitors.
Some disruption to ongoing services will be expected during this time.
