Victorian Rural Health Award Winners 2017


Congratulations to the winners of the 12th annual Victorian Rural Health Awards. These outstanding award winners took centre stage at the award ceremony held at Marysville on the 25th of March 2017.

Each year nominations are put forward by members of the public, community organisations and local healthcare providers and are assessed by an independent panel of judges.
