Moyne Health Services unveils its master plan redevelopment strategy
David Lee, Chief Executive Officer, then informed the community about the issues that gave rise to the preparation of the master plan. Mr Lee said, “that many of the old buildings located on the site were no longer fit for purpose and were inefficient”. Other issues include lack of car parking and access to the site for older members of the community and poor site drainage. Mr Lee concluded his presentation by stating, “the master plan is based upon a detailed and comprehensive community needs analysis and service plan.”
Chris Georgiou, an architect from Health Science Planning, then provided an overview of the master plan. The master plan is sequenced into three stages: community health, residential aged care and the hospital and administration. Mr Georgiou then provided details about the design of the community health centre and the urgent care redevelopment proposals.
The forum was advised that a new community health centre is proposed to be constructed on Villiers Street and the urgent care on the corner of Regent and Villiers streets.
Moyne Health Services has submitted an application for State Government funding under the Rural Capital Support Fund for the construction of a community health centre and an urgent care centre. The outcome of these submissions should be known in November, 2013.
