Grand Pacific Health (GPH) Centre – Nowra is working closely with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) to ensure patients have access to the right type of care in a timely manner.
With the GPH Centre – Nowra located next to the Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital, processes have been designed to reduce the burden on the hospital emergency department and to direct patients to the appropriate care.
