We’re working with the community to bring the best possible health and medical services to the people of Phillip Island, San Remo and surrounding communities.
Hello and welcome to our PIMHAG website.
The Phillip Island Medical & Health Action Group Incorporated (PIMHAG) is a group of dedicated Island volunteers that has been working tirelessly since 2009, to convince the different levels of government that Phillip Island needs better medical facilities.
Our community campaigns have been extremely successful. In December, 2018, the Hub was opened in Church Street, followed by the opening of the Urgent Care Centre in 2019. Both are outstanding facilities.
Running parallel to our advocacy for Phillip Island facilities, we also brought together other Bass Coast groups to highlight the poor state of facilities at Wonthaggi Hospital. Major redevelopments are now underway at Wonthaggi Hospital, vastly improving the facilities available to all in the Bass Coast.
PIMHAG is now clearly focussed on our third factility in Church Street. The Andrews State Government has promised a Community Hospital for Phillip Island, to be built no later than 2024. We are one of ten Community Hospitals to be built in Victoria, at an expected cost of $675 million. We have a busy three years ensuring the Community Hospital is delivered as promised. A fifteen year journey of building appropriate facilities for Phillip Island will be completed.
Each of the above developments have involved countless meetings for the PIMHAG Committee and thousands of hours of commitment. We have made a substantial difference and we thank the Phillip Island community for its support.
PIMHAG has met monthly for over ten years and continues to meet at the Phillip Island RSL and we sincerely thank them for the free use of their facilities.
