Celebrating our history

Northeast Health Wangaratta is celebrating over 140 years of service to our community.

The hospital in Wangaratta was established in 1872 on the current site and was later named the Wangaratta District Base Hospital (WDBH). Over time, the hospital evolved into the modern health service we now know as Northeast Health Wangaratta.

In the beginning, the hospital had 30 beds for the poor and destitute. Today Northeast Health Wangaratta is a modern 222-bed facility providing a range of healthcare services and referrals for the numerous smaller health services in the region.
