IPC Health - Altona Meadows
IPC Health is one of the largest providers of community health service in Victoria. IPC Health exists so that communities are healthy and well.
Individuals through a single point of contact can connect to a full spectrum of care and support using consistent approaches including those of our partners.
We provide good value to our stakeholders for the services we provide to the community.
We operate from six sites in Melbourne’s West and employ 400 staff with an annual budget of $37 million. Melbourne’s West has a population of circa 500,000 and the three Local Government Areas in which IPC Health is focused are growing rapidly. We know that our communities have numerous needs, some of them complex, but all are addressable by delivering services close to home, in a culturally relevant way, and that keep them out of hospital, or other high-acuity services. Our primary vision, therefore, is to make the highest quality primary health care accessible to all who need it.
This involves us in many areas of work in addition to core service delivery. We will work with our partners to improve health literacy, to make the system more integrated and more navigable for people, especially those who are hard to reach, or whose health literacy is low.
