At War Memorial Hospital we come from a belief that older people deserve the best possible care. Since 1985, we have been pioneering and inspiring a holistic approach to the wellbeing of older people with our sole specialist focus being aged rehabilitation. We have been on a mission to give people the best possible chance to live healthily into older age and to continue to enjoy the life they want to live, where they want to live.

We deliver a personalised ecosystem of health services for people over the age of 65, leading to better patient outcomes. We’re in the business of restoring the health of older Australians.

Our flexible, agile approach means we give each and every patient individualised care and attention and a program that affords them the best chance of success. We take both a proactive and reactive approach to care, depending on the circumstances of each and every person. This is only possible through teamwork and the quality of our suite of multidisciplinary services that we have meticulously developed over the past 95 years.
