Site Re-build Update
Internal demolition works are progressing and are expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Refurbishment and remediation works will then commence to bring the site back to operational capacity, which could take up to 12 months.
Re-opening of the site will occur in stages.
Our Acute Services, Kitchen and Stores wings will be the first departments opened, to enable services to the community to be reinstated on our site as our highest priority.
Yalukang Aged Care
Repatriation of Yalukang residents into temporary facilities will take place over the coming weeks.
Through extensive consultation with residents and their families we are pleased to have secured places for our residents in line with their preferences, locally in Tongala, Kyabram, Echuca and further afield where requested in Bendigo, Deniliquin, Mildura and Melbourne.
Staff will be re-deployed to these facilities to ensure continuity of care and familiar faces to our residents whilst our Yalukang Aged Care facility is rebuilt.
