Health Promotion


Yea and District Memorial Hospital is committed to preventing the development of lifestyle diseases in persons of all ages through the implementation of tailored health promotion initiatives that are set out in an annual plan and through collaborative partnership workings. To date, some of these initiatives include:

  • Installing raised garden pod/beds in the courtyard of the Aged Care facility – Rosebank
  • Working in partnership with Deakin University to deliver the RESPOND* project in Murrindindi Shire
  • Implementing the Healthy Choices: Policy Guidelines for Hospitals and Health Services at Yea & District Memorial Hospital

Going forward, YDMH will continue focusing on increasing the healthy eating and physical activity levels of residents of Yea and surrounding towns, alongside hosting events and health promotion features in local papers. Presentations to local community groups can also be arranged – please call 5736 0400 and ask to speak to the Health Promotion Coordinator. 

* RESPOND is a shared community approach to improving the health and wellbeing of children across the Ovens Murray – Goulburn region. Delivery is supported by the Victorian Department of Health, Victorian Department of Education and Training, VicHealth, Hume Public Health Unit, local Councils and health services.
