Western District Health Service (WDHS) was created from an amalgamation of Hamilton Base Hospital and Penshurst and District Memorial Hospital. WDHS also incorporates The Grange, Frances Hewett Community Centre and YouthBiz.
The redeveloped Acute Care Facilites at Hamilton Base Hospital was officically opened in 1997 and incorporated into the WDHS, as well as the recent on-site redevelopment opened in 2000 consisting of The Birches extended care centre and the refurbished Hamilton House Allied Health Centre.
Other developments include the redevelopment of The Grange into a modern, 45-bed, residential aged care facility and the refurbishment of Queen Victoria Cottages into the current Frances Hewett Community Centre.
