Over the past three years, increased collaboration and integration between Lorne Community Hospital and Otway Health have In July 2019, this natural alignment was strengthened even further. Otway Health and Lorne Community Hospital joined forces to operate under one entity, Great Ocean Road Health.
Operating as a single entity facilitates our health services to meet the growing health care needs of the community and remain financially sustainable for the future.
Great Ocean Road Health will not only retain all local hospital names, services and staffing levels, but strengthen current services and increase access to new ones. This will mean more robust, readily available health care for Lorne and Apollo Bay into the future.
