The Multipurpose Service (MPS) model of care is specifically designed for regional and remote communities to provide coordinated delivery of health and aged care services.
The project at Cobar was to deliver a new Health Service co-located adjacent to the existing aged care services (Lilliane Brady Village) owned by Cobar Shire Council.
The new Health Service facility will provide inpatient beds, an emergency treatment bay, medical imaging, and community and allied health spaces.
Following our health planning advice, major extensions to Lilliane Brady Village were deemed necessary. Additionally, four staff accommodation units will be located on-site, with provision for visiting services such as mobile breast screening.
The building’s design and materials have been selected to cope with high diurnal temperatures (often 450C).
This project is due for completion in early 2020.
