New Pathology Provider for Swan Hill
Austin Health is now the new pathology provider at Swan Hill District Health (SHDH). SHDH would like to acknowledge Australian Clinical Labs (ACL) who have provided a highly valued pathology service to SHDH for many years.
“We thank ACL staff for their dedication and commitment particularly during this transition phase” SHDH Chief Executive Officer Peter Abraham said.
A new pathology collection service will also be established as part of the introduction of Austin Health pathology services to Swan Hill, co-located at Swan Hill Surgical Practice (45 McCrae Street, Swan Hill).
The new collection centre will offer greater choice for the community when accessing pathology services in Swan Hill. “We hope that this service will assist in meeting demand for local pathology collection services which has been an expressed need from the community for some time” Mr Abraham highlighted.
Austin Health Pathology is a public provider of pathology services across the state and are a bulk bill only service. Austin Health will accept pathology request forms from all pathology providers.
The new collection service will operate 7am-4.30pm Monday-Friday and 8am-12pm Saturday. The new service commenced operation on Tuesday 2nd February.
