About Us » History

Northern Health is a dynamic health service, providing vital public healthcare to residents of Melbourne’s northern suburbs and the surrounding regional communities. Our five campuses offer services to a vastly diverse community at all stages of life.

Northern Health was born out of the desegregation of the North Western Health Care Network. These changes were made in order to improve the quality of services and to provide community focused health care.

The Northern Hospital first opened in February, 1998, and Northern Health was established in July, 2000.

Northern Health initially included The Northern Hospital, Bundoora Extended Care Centre, and Broadmeadows Health Service, but Northern Health took stewardship of Panch Health Service in 2003, and opened a fifth campus, Craigieburn Health Service, in 2007.

Each year our organization continues to grow and develop as we adapt and improve services to meet the ever-changing needs of the community we serve. We are dedicated to providing the highest standards of clinical care and providing quality, innovative care in a compassionate manner.
