PDH's Community Health Precinct Moves To Next Phase

PDH New Entance
Friday, 9 October 2015
Construction of Portland District Health’s new Primary and Community Health Precinct is entering its next phase as work on the $460,000 project draws to an end.

Access to the building will be changed over the next few weeks as the construction work is finalised.

Hotel Services Manager Barb James said the new reception area would be completed this week before work starts on the treatment room.

This means we will have to block the entry people have been using, Ms James said.

People will need to revert to using the original front entrance.

For the week of October 5-9 both entrances will be available but from October 12 until the end of the month only the front entrance can be used.

The project will integrate allied health, specialist and community consulting services and programs in a newly refurbished building.

There will also be more rooms available for visiting specialists.

PDH Director of Corporate Services Ros Jones said this would assist the community to more easily access the services they require through a one-stop shop approach.

Ms Jones said PDH hoped to keep disruption for patients to a minimum.

A new temporary undercover drop-off point has been established near the building during the construction process.

Allied and community health services to be co-located will include speech therapy, diabetes education, psychology services, dietitians, drug and alcohol services and cancer support.

Some of the services had been relocated from the former community health services building in Otway Street.

PDH received Rural Capital Support funding of $463,636 for the project.
