The Kingston Health Centre is a new development project encompassing a brand new, 2-storey health care facility for the Kingborough and Huon Valley communities, built on part of the former Kingston High School site.
This project has been broken into two stages and will provide a range of primary and public health, preventative and social services, where teams of professionals work alongside other disciplines in one consolidated building. The design and layout of the facility is contemporary, providing care in a comfortable and friendly environment, but more importantly it is flexible, allowing for future health service delivery as the area grows.
The functional, modern, light-filled building will be energy efficient, and will feature local Tasmanian timbers in both its construction and decoration, alongside natural inspired elements and materials, promoting a healthy, sustainable environment. Landscaping will complement the design, creating a series of green zones, encouraging social interaction and inviting clients and guests to spend time outside.
Services to be housed in the new facility will include:
- Community Nursing,
- Child Health and Parenting Services,
- Mental Health Services,
- Social Work Services,
- Allied Health Services, including physiotherapy, podiatry, speech pathology and dietetics services
- Oral Health Services.
This project is now in construction.
