THE new Euroa Health GraniteHill Aged Care complex opened its doors to contributors and the public on Saturday, May 13 to a very positive reaction from the community.
Euroa Health board members and senior staff led tours of the complex for contributors to the appeal throughout the morning while members of the general public were invited between 2pm and 4pm. The public as still trickling out the doors well past 4pm.
“We had upwards of 800 people of all ages through the doors with overwhelmingly positive comments that it’s beyond their expectations” said Wayne Sullivan, chief excutive officer of Euroa Health.
“GraniteHill has been designed to invite the community in, to encourage residents to link with their family and friends when they please and use the variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy.
“The public have responded positively and we are nearly at our $500,000 target, however we are still welcoming donations. Any excess will reduce our borrowings to undertake any further development.”
The $15m project is set to be officially opened on Friday, June 2, at 10am by Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt.
