Building Projects

An important part of the experience you have at Cobaw are the spaces in which we provide services. The Board and staff regularly seek opportunities to review and improve our service delivery sites. On this page, you can find all the up-to-date information and progress on the building projects such as Romsey and the Healthy Community Access Hub in Kyneton, including any upcoming opportunities to contribute feedback at key points during the projects.

Healthy Community Access Hub – Kyneton

In March 2017, it was announced that Cobaw’s application to the Labor Government’s new Regional Health Infrastructure Fund to build a new Healthy Community Access Hub in Kyneton was successful. The nearly $10 million of funding will go towards building a modern ‘one-stop-shop’ for accessing a range of community health services. The purpose-built hub will bring together primary health and community health services, private practitioners and counsellors and will feature a significant increase in multi-purpose consulting rooms. It will also feature the latest advances in e-health technology making it easier for clients to create and change bookings and access care from remote areas of the region.

In late June, we hosted the first community information session relating to the build which provided the opportunity for community members to engage in a conversation, share ideas for the hub and receive an update on progress so far. We are committed to working with stakeholders to meet the health and wellbeing needs of the local community and are seeking to create a building that welcomes and supports community connections and activities.

In April Cobaw established the Project Control Group to lead this project and has focused on securing a suitable location to build the Healthy Community Access Hub. Cobaw has been a significant local provider of community health support services for over 30 years and the aim is to establish a purpose-built new building on a greenfield site to ensure the best possible facilities for the community.

12/06/18 – We’ve announced the site of the Healthy Community Access Hub. Visit the announcement post to find out more.
