Historical information

The Tawonga & District Hospital was situated in Tawonga at the corner of Ryders Lane and the Kiewa Valley Highway. The construction was initiated by the Hospital & Charities Commission with considerable assistance from the SECV. It was officially opened in 1949. It was relocated to Mt Beauty in 1961. In 1997, the business combined with the hospitals in the Alpine Shire (Bright & Myrtleford) and became 'Alpine Health'.


The annual reports of the local Mt Beauty hospital and associated health facilities gives an insight into its changes both medical and in its governance with its consequences to the small towns and district over the years.
