About Us

Since opening its doors on June 21st, 1871, Mansfield District Hospital has played an integral role in the community. Over the years, the community’s trust has continued to grow, which is a testament to every board member, staff, volunteer and community member who has been involved.

Today’s team acknowledge this trust with a deep sense of responsibility. As the primary provider of local health and aged care services we proudly uphold the legacy of being a clinically excellent, community focused, values-driven organisation.

Our Values

We Deliver Great Care

We strive for the best health outcomes for people who use our services, and communities every time. Patients, residents, clients, their families and friends- our consumers- are at the centre or everything we do, and we consistently provide high-quality, safe and personalised care. We demonstrate empathy and kindness in every aspect of our care.

We Respect Each Other

We respect our peers, our consumers, our hospital and our environment. Care is delivered thoughtfully and with compassion. We are considerate of our consumers’ dignity and privacy, and our consumers trust and have confidence in our quality of care. We actively listen and act fairly, impartially and without judgement

We work as a cohesive team and feel connected to the work we do together. We maintain strong connections to our diverse communities in and outside of Mansfield. We work in collaboration with our partners to deliver exceptional care. We have honest and open conversations with our staff, consumers and the community.

We Empower Each Other

We support and trust each other to deliver an exceptional consumer experience. We give our consumers the information and resources they need to make considered and informed decisions about their health care.
