CASE STUDY

LATROBE REGIONAL HOSPITAL

Using local purchasing to create jobs for people with a disability

As participants in the GROW program and a major purchaser in the Gippsland region, Latrobe Regional Hospital reviewed their purchase of goods and services to identify areas where they can have greater influence on benefiting local people, particularly those who experience barriers to employment.

As a result the Hospital has now contracted Latrobe Valley Enterprises, a Morwell-based not-for-profit providing employment opportunities for people with a disability, to provide their land care maintenance.
