Blue Care to launch rehab centre as part of Australian-first primary health centre

19/05/2017

South-East Queenslanders will gain unprecedented access to a range of specialist health services under one roof as Blue Care gets set to open a state of the art rehabilitation centre, within the Morayfield Health Hub.

UnitingCare Queensland Group Executive, Integrated Services SEQ, Cathy Thomas said the Blue Care Rehabilitation Centre would provide clients with a range of allied health and specialist health services, such as physiotherapy, speech pathology, podiatry, rehabilitation and muscular-skeletal services.

“Blue Care has a strong, ongoing commitment to ensure Queenslanders receive the highest quality care and support so they can continue living life their way,” Ms Thomas said.

“Blue Care’s Rehabilitation Centre will be located within an Australian-first multi-service health hub, where people can see their GP and receive rehabilitation and specialist treatment, without having to travel long distances for the treatment they need.

“We’re excited by this unique opportunity, which means clients will have a team of GPs, specialists and other health professionals behind them, under the one roof, working together to deliver the best health outcomes.

“The time and cost involved in travelling to and from medical appointments can be draining for many people, especially those with higher care needs, but having this centre in close proximity to so many specialist services will hopefully ease the burden.”

Ms Thomas said with construction currently ahead of schedule, it was anticipated the centre would open to clients by early 2018.

“Once completed, Blue Care’s Rehabilitation Centre will include individual consultation rooms, a gym and rehabilitation treatment area and large meetings rooms for group work,” she said.

Blue Care’s Rehabilitation Centre is part of the $100 million Morayfield Health Hub, being developed by Health Developments Corporation in conjunction with Argus Property Partners, which will include a large GP Clinic, a specialist medical centre, urgent and acute care facilities, a pharmacy, government agencies and a diagnostic pathology and radiology centre.
