Aged Care Accommodation Services: Benalla Health Morrie Evans Wing
The Morrie Evans Wing (MEW) is a Commonwealth funded residential aged care facility which was officially opened on 11th June 1978 by Dr. Wilder, Chairman of the Hospital and Charities Commission. Also on this day Mr. T. C. Trewin M.L.A announced the name of the building the Morrie Evans Nursing Home in honour of Mr Morris Evans M.B.E.

Mr. Evans was heavily involved in the establishment of the Benalla and District Memorial Hospital. He was a strong community advocate and proudly served his community over a 35 year period commencing on the 14th November 1944 and finishing on the 29th November 1979 when he resigned his position as President of the BDMH Board of Management (BOM).

Our 30 bed high care facility has a bed configuration consisting of;

5 rooms with 4 beds,
4 rooms with 2 beds and
2 single rooms with single beds.

The Morrie Evans Wing is situated on the Benalla Health campus and comes under the governance of the 9 member Benalla Health Board.

Each resident living in the MEW receives a high standard of holistic resident centred care.

We believe that residents are highly valued individuals and we work hard to ensure that their emotional, social, physical and spiritual needs are met in a homely friendly atmosphere. Family, friends and community members are warmly welcomed and invited to participate in the ongoing care of the residents.

Morrie Evans Wing employs all trained staff in the role of direct carers, utilising Registered Nurses Division one, Enrolled Nurses, Personal Care Attendants and also employs lifestyle staff and a Diversional Therapist.

Morrie Evans Wing is fully compliant across all 44 standard outcomes and was awarded full accreditation on the 16th May 2012 by the Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency for 3 years.
