Help Bendigo Health invest in home-grown ideas and deliver excellence in healthcare by taking part in our Japan Trek 2020 along the Nakasendo Trail.

The Nakasendo Trail, one of Japan’s ancient highways and now an iconic walking path, is unlike any bushwalk you’ve ever done. Imagine retracing to footsteps of the samurai, haiku masters and merchants on one of the most historic paths in Asia.

The Bendigo Health Japan Trek 2020 is your chance to discover the Nakasendo Trail and help us provide Victorians in the Loddon Mallee region with world-class healthcare. You’ll support home-grown healthcare innovations while trekking with our CEO and other people like yourself, people who want to make a difference and are willing to step outside the everyday routine – all in the name of adventure and giving back!

Make 2020 the year you do something life-changing – for yourself and for others.

Bendigo Health has been serving Victorians across the Loddon Mallee region for over 150 years. We believe all people, no matter where they live, should have access to the best in medical care. That’s why this year, we’ve launched our Innovation Fund, a brand new program to fund the innovative ideas our medical teams put forward. When a nurse, or doctor, or other team member comes up with an idea that we know will make a big difference in the care our patients receive, we want to make it happen.

Like the idea Anton, a Clinical Nurse Specialist in the Emergency Department, had to provide patients with clothes to leave the hospital in if theirs had been damaged in trauma, or cut away for medical teams to provide care.

We want to keep cultivating ideas for excellence. That’s why we’re launching our biggest fundraising event yet, the Japan Trek 2020, and hope you’ll join us supporting these home-grown innovations.
