MERGES WITH

MID VALLEY FAMILY MEDICINE, MORWELL

Tel: 5134 3888

Due to the unprecedented Doctor shortage that has affected the Latrobe Valley, Hollie Drive Medical Centre is merging with Mid Valley Family Medicine on Thursday January 30th 2020.

After much consideration, MAACG Medical Group Pty Ltd has had to make the decision to merge the above two Clinics. Despite the tireless efforts of our Company to secure doctors to alleviate the long standing doctor shortage, with lack of support from Governments, both State and Federal, the bureaucratic process has had a direct impact on local communities not being able to be treated by the lack of doctors in the Latrobe Valley. As a consequence further pressure has been placed on the Latrobe Regional Hospital, Traralgon to accommodate general practice presentations, which otherwise would be managed by our doctors, had we had the doctors to support this.

We recognise that this situation has caused distress to existing patients.

Mid Valley Family welcomes all Hollie Drive Medical Centre patients. All efforts will be done to assist in supporting everyone during this transition. Mid Valley Family Medicine Doctors and staff welcome you to the Clinic.

We are delighted to advise that Dr Fred Edwards and Dr Kasun Vithanage will be relocating to Mid Valley Family Medicine. Dr Krishma Khanna goes on maternity leave early January however we are anticipating after her maternity break, she will commence working at Hazelwood Health Centre, Churchill around June 2020.

In the meantime please continue to book with your current Doctor at Hollie Drive Medical Centre, until Thursday 30th January 2020.

Hollie Drive Medical Centre’s telephone number will be diverted to Mid Valley Family Medicine, Tel 5134 3888.

The Doctors and staff at Hollie Drive Medical Centre would like to thank everyone for supporting the Clinic over the past 19 years.

MAACG Medical Group Pty Ltd thanks you for your understanding during this time.
