MTHCS provides best practice clinical care to acute patients at MTHCS Ouyen and Sea Lake. Acute Care services are limited to medical cases. Anything requiring complex care is referred to a higher level service such as Mildura Base Public Hospital, Swan Hill District Health Service or Bendigo Health.
The Medical Officer on duty is the only person authorised to initiate admission of a patient to Acute Care. If the Medical Officer is not on duty, no admissions are accepted.
For enquiries regarding acute care, call the Ouyen Service Centre on (03) 5092 1111 and speak to the Nurse Unit Manager, or call the Sea Lake Service Centre on (03) 5070 2155 and speak to the Director of Nursing.
