Latrobe Regional Hospital, Your Hospital


Welcome to Latrobe Regional Hospital, the designated regional health service for the Gippsland region.


LRH is a purpose-built, 261-bed teaching hospital offering a suite of medical services from its Traralgon West location. Catering for a population of more than 240,000, the hospital treats close to 115,000 people every year, more than a quarter of them in our busy Emergency Department.


The hospital provides services in the areas of aged care, cancer care, elective surgery, maternity, rehabilitation and mental health. It runs eight community mental health centres across Gippsland and a Community Residential Care Unit for people with prolonged severe mental illness and associated disability.


LRH provides fantastic employment opportunities as one of the region’s biggest employers. Our 1789 staff members are employed in clinical and medical professions, administration, catering and cleaning. The hospital is linked with the Monash University School of Nursing and the Gippsland Medical School and actively participates in undergraduate teaching.


In addition we have 45 regular volunteers and a whole army of valued supporters who assist with a variety of tasks and our popular community and fundraising events, such as the Run for Your Life fun run and walk and the annual Gala Ball.


In 2012 and 2013 our major focus is the $8 million redevelopment of our Allied Health department and expansion of the Gippsland Cancer Care Centre, which includes William Buckland radiotherapy, chemotherapy and dialysis.


With this investment and donations of close to $600,000 in 2011/2012, we continue to meet the needs of our community and to deliver the best health care possible to the residents of Gippsland.
