Healthcare Rights

At Mildura Health Private Hospital, patient empowerment and active participation in healthcare decisions are paramount. We deeply respect each individual's right to make informed choices that impact their well-being. Through open communication and transparent information-sharing, we strive to provide a supportive environment where patients are well-informed about their medical conditions, treatment options, and potential risks and benefits. Our patient-centred approach ensures that patients are active partners in their healthcare journey, enabling them to make confident decisions that align with their values and preferences. We advocate for patient autonomy and seek to collaborate with families, caregivers, and advocates to ensure that everyone involved is engaged and informed throughout the decision-making process. Upholding this commitment is central to our mission in delivering exceptional care and achieving positive healthcare outcomes for each patient who entrusts us with their health.
