Peninsula Health serves the metropolitan and regional areas on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. With two hospitals, several sub-acute facilities and community health, the organisation provides a wide range of integrated services to the catchment population of 300 000 people. In addition to providing quality, accessible health care we are a teaching hospital with a strong commitment to medical research and an emerging focus on chronic disease and ageing health.
Peninsula Health sees affiliation with the Choosing Wisely campaign as an exciting opportunity to rationalise our use of pathology testing, imaging and medications. The initial priority will be a focus on pathology ordering and patient benefits.
