The Yarrawonga Health Dialysis Unit provides a dialysis service six days a week, two shifts a day, accommodating up to 11 permanent local patients and one holiday patient each week. Because of Yarrawonga’s popularity as a number one holiday destination, tourists are also provided with a dedicated treatment holiday house for patients holidaying in our area.
The Unit is overseen by the North East Dialysis Service (NWDS) under the healthcare umbrella of the Royal Melbourne Hospital (Melbourne Health).
Yarrawonga Health has many regular patients who travel from all over Australia to holiday in Yarrawonga and we are fortunate that the Dialysis and Transport Association (DATA) of Victoria have fully funded and built the DATA House which is situated only a few metres from Lake Mulwala. The house is fully furnished, sleeps seven people and is equipped with two dialysis machines – bookings for this House can be made through DATA House.
