Latrobe Regional Hospital

Flynn Unit

People who require a hospital stay and more intensive treatment to improve their mental health are admitted to the Flynn Unit which is the only inpatient facility in Gippsland.

The unit focuses on providing people with treatment, education and rehabilitation in an effort to help them return to their communities to begin the recovery journey.

Flynn delivers a range of therapeutic interventions ranging from medically-based pharmaceutical interventions to social, psychological and recreational therapies with the aim of managing the illness and preventing relapse. The needs of the person are met by a team including nursing, medical and allied health professionals.

Our team of consumer and carer consultants have a lived experience of mental illness and are able to support people and their families or carers through what is a stressful time in their lives.

Most people usually stay in Flynn for up to 12 days and can be referred to specialist services in the community following discharge.

Our tax time appeal for mums-to-be

Help us bring the next generation of Gippslanders into the world safely. Support our appeal to purchase a new ultrasound machine.

The latest ultrasound equipment will provide our obstetricians and midwives with superior imaging quality of an unborn baby to monitor their growth and health. If we can pick up on changes in a baby's development, we may be in a better position to prevent complications during birth.
