Consortium award celebrated
Benalla Health is proudly displaying an award that Community Interlink, which Benalla Health is a part of, received as winner of the 2019 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards’ Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers Award for Excellence in Public Sector Aged Care.
The award celebrates Victoria’s aged care sector that supports programs and services to meet the needs of the increasing number of older Victorians.
In what is believed to be an Australian first, the Community Interlink health services consortium was formed in 2015 to ensure ongoing home care could be provided to those most in need in the communities the consortium services.
The consortium works toward building the capacity of member agencies to deliver direct care and co-ordinated care while opening up new contracting opportunities and encouraging organisational learning and development.
