Bordertown Community Health Building Floorplan

The Bordertown Community Health Building is home to community nursing and a range of allied health services including podiatry, occupational therapy, social work, palliative care, speech pathology therapy, dietetics and home support staff.

The current building is almost 50 years old and over the years has gradually deteriorated. We are commencing the process to rebuild the space and we would like to thank the community for their feedback on the proposed floorplans.

Due to be built in early 2023, our intention is to ensure this building is fit for purpose to continue to offer a high-quality of community and allied health services to Bordertown and the surrounding communities.

All clinical and consult rooms will be fitted with handbasins and data points (for computer access/ telehealth). This will ensure that the rooms are as flexible as possible for different uses in the future.
