Benetas and Macedon Ranges Health amalgamation receives overwhelming support

It is with great pleasure and excitement that Benetas and Macedon Ranges Health announce the amalgamation of our two organisations has been supported, following a vote on 14 November by Macedon Ranges Health Members.

Benetas and Macedon Ranges Health are united in our strong community values and our unwavering commitment to supporting our clients, residents, staff and volunteers.

We share a vision of delivering high quality not-for-profit services for all in the region including those most vulnerable in our community, while investing in services to meet growing needs and creating local employment opportunities. The amalgamation of Benetas and Macedon Ranges Health will allow us to deliver on our vision and make it a reality.

Sandra Hills OAM, CEO of Benetas, thanked the Macedon Ranges community for its overwhelming support of the amalgamation.

“Benetas is absolutely committed to maintaining the heritage and identity of Macedon Ranges Health which the community knows and loves,” Ms Hills said.

The amalgamation represents a significant investment by Benetas over the next eight years with $60 million set to be invested to upgrade, expand and redevelop the facilities and services that Macedon Ranges Health provides.

This will see an initial investment of $1.2 million in Macedon Ranges Health’s existing facilities and infrastructure for the benefit of the community and aged care residents.
