Kiama Community Health Centre
Client: NSW Health – Illawarra and Shoalhaven Local Health District
Location: Kiama, NSW
Description: This innovative development on the site of a decommissioned hospital involves both local and state government authorities. NSW ISLHD engaged with Gran Associates to design and construct a Community Health Centre. On the same site, Kiama council will construct a new aged care facility, which will be managed by Council. Both of the commissioning parties recognized the opportunities for this project, enabling links between the aged care facility and the local community.
The Community Health Centre, once constructed, will provide a dental clinic, consulting rooms, audiometry facility, meeting and function rooms, and administration. The restrained pavilion design makes the appropriate gesture to the adjacent Victorian era mansion (a local heritage item) which is incorporated in the aged care facility.
