Minister For Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt breaks ground with Hall & Prior CEO Graeme Prior.
Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt officially broke ground for the $65 million world-class George's Estate project last week with Hall & Prior CEO Graeme Prior.
Based in Penshurst, NSW the new project aims to deliver premium health outcomes for local residents and give a broad range of options for aged care in south-east Sydney.
George's Estate will offer high-level, 24/7 care services in accordance with world's best practice; including 111 beds over three levels dedicated to caring for those with all levels of need.
It will also offer specialist services including a secure dementia care wing offering an initial 18 beds combined with a multitude of luxurious leisure and health related services and amenities.
"As with all of our residences, George's Estate Health & Aged Care is a purpose built space for healing, providing quality care to soothe the soul, with access to state-of-the-art amenities including a day therapy centre, wellness centre, gymnasium, cinema, a heated swimming pool and a primary and allied health clinic," Mr Prior said.
"George's Estate will focus on the best possible care for residents and the continual betterment of staff."
The fully financed, Hall & Prior owned and operated project also leverages its award winning care program with mobile health professionals providing much needed in-home and community aged care services to people within the local region.
"We'd like to thank the land owner, Georges River Council for its invaluable and ongoing support of this development," Mr Prior added.
"We are committed to the local community and believe these truly unique, integrated residences will increase access to leading, quality and relevant aged care in the St George region.
"Our ultimate goal is to deliver premium health outcomes for local residents and the wider community in a safe, comfortable location that remains connected to the broader community."
The project is due for completion in 2020.
