Bolga Court Hostel


Profile

Tallangatta Hospital and Tallangatta & District Care Centre Inc merged as one organisation on the 1st July, 1997. This resulted in the integration of Bolga Court Hostel, managed by the Tallangatta and District Extended Care Centre Inc, into the management structure of the existing hospital complex.

In November 1999 Tallangatta Hospital underwent a name change to become known as Tallangatta Health Service.

With the acceptance into the Healthstreams program, Tallangatta Health Service extended its service provision to the community by introducing community based services including home and Community Care Services.

PARTNERING WITH OUR CONSUMERS
Effective engagement by Tallangatta Health Service with patients, residents, clients and consumers and the broader community is integral to more transparent and improved quality and safe healthcare. We do this by:

At Tallangatta Health Service our strategic aspirations: “Make the greatest possible positive impact on our community’s health and develop and utilise partnerships that add value to our effort” are our guiding principles to develop a robust and sustainable community engagement strategy and framework. The THS strategic plan further guides how we embrace all opportunities with our consumers. Our consumer’s input enable us to make more informed decisions for future service planning, guide us to think critically about the models of care and service we provide, and assist us in measuring our service and evaluating our systems of care and service. This consumer centred approach changes the service delivery paradigm from one of “doing to” to that of “working with”. This is a critical cultural shift in health care and paves the way for fostering a collaborative approach to care decision making and evaluation.
