What is a Strategic Plan?
It is a road map for the future. It describes where the Geraldton District Hospital wants to be and how it will get there. It is a plan that encompasses the next five years and it will impact and involve other health care providers in the communities of Greenstone and area.
Geraldton District Hospital strives to ensure access to high quality health care and information for residents to build a healthier community. The Hospital plans to accomplish this through the following 5 strategic directions.
Collaborative planning with local, district and regional partners will help ensure that seamless services are provided to patients.
Programs and Services
Considering the vast geography of the catchment area, it is imperative that all primary care programs and services are provided as close to home as possible.
Health Human Resources
Considering the remote location of Geraldton District Hospital, it is critical that appropriate retention and recruitment incentives are in place and reviewed regularly to ensure successful recruitment.
The Hospital is almost 50 years old and building system equipment are failing faster than they can be upgraded. Government grants are helpful but cover less than half of the overall costs.
In the existing economic climate (poor) it is more important than ever that quality and accountability are practiced to ensure that the needs of patients come first, while maintaining safe services and facilities.
