How Barwon Health was established

Barwon Health was formed on 1 April 1998 as the result of a voluntary amalgamation between:

  • Geelong Hospital (now University Hospital Geelong)
  • Grace McKellar Centre (now named McKellar Centre)
  • Surf Coast Community Health Centre (Torquay and Anglesea)
  • Geelong Community Health Centre
  • Corio Community Health Centre

Traditional Owners

We, Barwon Health, acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land, the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the Elders both past and present.
