About Murray Valley Private Hospital
The Murray Valley Private Hospital (MVPH) was opened on March 17 1999 by Dr. Michael Wooldridge.
It is Australia’s first rural radiation and medical oncology centre and provides a comprehensive and specialist cancer service to the community of regional Victoria and southern NSW.
Other services provided by MVPH include acute medical care, chemotherapy day patient services, rehabilitation services and low-cost accommodation for outpatients and patient carers.
Our focus is on the provision of high quality patient/customer care and maintaining an environment which ensures quality and continuous improvement.
Murray Valley Private Hospital operates within the former Clyde Cameron Training College building located on the corner of Nordsvan Drive and Pearce Street in Wodonga.
The building was built by the Federal Government in 1977 as Australia’s first residential trade union college, and the first of its kind in the world. Its name honoured the Minister for Labor and Immigration in the Whitlam Government and was built at a cost of $6.5 million.
The college was designed by a Melbourne architect, Kevin Borlan and constructed by Costain and A.B. and M.A. Chick. The unusual architecture and internal arrangements display the tradesmen’s skills.
Trade union training ceased at the college on 30 June 1996.
Murray Valley Private Hospital is Heritage Listed.
