Not just a place to repair, it’s a place to meet, catch up and care for one another in a familiar natural environment. This coastal front line health service serves a proudly aged population whose health is essential to their quality and way of life. Juxtaposed against clinical spaces are natural places for people to linger and enjoy, including an external waiting area for First Nations people and a Children’s Bush Play Space beside the foyer.
Nestled in the cradle of the Tomaree National Park amongst an important Koala colony and breeding habitat the Port Stephens HealthOne project required careful siting and protective consideration; Flexibility, sustainability, future adaptability and respect for ongoing operational elements are key achievements in this project. With this new expansion, the Port Stephens HealthOne Tomaree Hospital is now a holistic health experience including medical imaging, oral health, community health and a GP service.
