Respecting Diversity

Rochester and Elmore District Health Service recognises, supports and celebrates the diversity of the communities within which we work. Our services are delivered to people of all ages and health status with a focus on care of the aged and vulnerable.

We acknowledge the First Peoples of Australia and their unique role in our history and society.

We work with individuals and groups from a wide range of backgrounds, interests and experiences. We recognise the important attributes that those who followed from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds have brought to our communities.

We welcome people of different sexual orientations and gender identities, who are a significant portion of our population and who have helped shape our local culture.

We appreciate the challenges experienced through financial disadvantage and endeavour to consider the impact it has upon people, when providing services.
