We offer the township of Bacchus Marsh a family medical practice where patients receive reliable, quality and complete health care. Our clinic is owned and run by local doctors who live in Bacchus Marsh and are committed to maintaining the central role of the traditional family doctor. The Elms continues its strong involvement with the town's local hospital, with our doctors providing urgent care, aged care, palliative care and in-hospital management for patients in Bacchus Marsh.
In addition to our commitment to providing quality health care, we have a particular focus on staff education, continual service improvement and maintaining a friendly working environment.
We have thirteen consulting rooms, a comprehensively equipped surgical procedure room, as well as a separate three-bay treatment room managed by our Practice Nurses. The Elms is a totally computerised practice, with full e-health (My Health Record) and tele-health capability. Our clinic also includes a diabetes educator, psychologists, podiatrists, specialist women's ultrasound, physiotherapist, dietitian, visiting specialists, and on-site pathology collection, all supported by a dedicated team of receptionists and administrative staff. We are also a Government registered provider of Yellow Fever vaccination for travellers to regions of Africa, and Central and South America. The Elms is conveniently located in central Bacchus Marsh close to many amenities, including a pharmacy, post office, food outlets and other retail shops, along with ample parking.
The Elms has a longstanding record of giving back to the community through its involvement in the education of future health professionals. Our senior doctors have specialist qualifications in general practice and provide mentorship to post-graduate medical practitioners (registrars) and medical students. Through the combination of leadership, guidance and demonstration, we aim to foster the development of community-minded family doctors.
In 2013, we completed a major renovation and expansion which doubled the size of the clinic, allowing for more consulting rooms and additional services. We have excellent access for patients with a disability, as well as a patient-friendly waiting room and reception area. This redevelopment was made with partial funding from an Australian Government grant through the National Rural and Remote Health Infrastructure Program and was officially opened on 19th July 2013.
