REDEVELOPMENTS for the revitalised Hospice Community Palliative Care Hub are well underway.
Cranes working alongside GL+DC Marshall Pty Ltd. have started the heavy lifting on the corner of Wyndham Steet and Balaclava Road, Shepparton, piecing together what will become another terrific asset to local healthcare.
The impressive $3M build, which should be completed in winter 2022, is a purpose-built space that will provide palliative care patients and their loved ones improved access to specialists medical, nursing and counselling staff.
Executive manager, Faye Hosie, said that GV Hospice health professionals, volunteers and other staff have been diligently providing care under restrictive conditions.
Yet, the organisation has continued to grow with more people able to stay in Shepparton to receive medical care due to the increased number of specialised oncology and radiation treatments delivered locally.
The GV Hospice Community Palliative Care Hub will be another top-notch care facility added to that list, ensuring free, 24-hour, seven-days-a-week palliative care within the comfort of their own home.
With adequate space to welcome patients and their families, as well as new clinicians and carers, this redevelopment is an asset that will serve the community for generations.
