Medical Centre

Yackandandah Health has supported the provision of medical services in Yackandandah from its inception as a cottage hospital in 1926 and following the move to the current site in 1931. 


In September 2017, Yackandandah Health resumed management of the medical practice.

Mary Groth is working with us in reception and Maree Rochow is our Practice Nurse. Dr Tess Goodwin is our doctor and we are actively recruiting additional doctors. 

Our aim is to offer doctors’ appointments Monday to Friday. It may take some time to build the practice up to this level, so we are asking for your patience and understanding.

If you would like to transfer your medical records to the medical centre, you can do so on this form.

As we appoint doctors and build up the opening hours, you will find more information here.
