Great Ocean Road Health Community Services refurbishment Project

We are excited to inform the community that our Community Services refurbishment project is finally
underway. This project will meet the growing needs of our community by providing a state-of-the-art facility to accommodate our GP’s, trainees and visiting specialists.

What is the Refurbishment Building Project?

The project will consist of three (3) working stages:
Stage 1 – will see the redevelopment of the Childcare entry with some exterior works, and the creation of a consumer waiting room and accessible entrance for the Medical Clinic. Access will be inclusive and allow easy wheelchair access.

Stage 2 – work will continue with an internal refurbishment to the Medical Centre (re-housed as a response to the COVID pandemic) to be utilised as an integrated Primary Care Clinic which will acquire space currently utilised by Community Services

Stage 3 – continues with the redevelopment of the Community Services space to delineate offices and a Multi-Purpose/Multidisciplinary space. Refurbished office space will be used by Community Services and District Nursing Teams. Staff amenities will also be revamped during this stage, updating bathrooms and kitchen staff room areas to align with infection control guidelines.
