Lodge Redevelopment in Planning Stage
The redevelopment of Numurkah Pioneers Memorial Lodge was confirmed by the Victorian Government following the release of the May State Budget.
$54.3 million was committed to the project, which is coordinated by The Victorian Health Board Authority (VHBA) and the Department of Health in partnership with NCN Health.
Construction for the redevelopment is expected to begin in 2025. To ensure that this is possible, NCN Health are currently working with the VHBA and the Department of Health to progress the master plans. Once the planning stage is complete more information will be made available on the next steps for the new facility.
The redevelopment will see a new 36-bed residential aged care next to the Numurkah Karinya Nursing Home and hospital acute ward. It will feature larger, more spacious and functional rooms to allow for improved mobility and care for residents while creating a safer and more efficient working environment for staff.
NCN Health CEO Jacque Phillips said the health service was excited to see the project underway.
“The redevelopment of the Numurkah Pioneers Memorial Lodge is a priority capital works project for NCN Health. The funding is the result of more than 20 years of tireless advocacy from past and current board members, staff and community. We understand interest in the project is high and NCN Health will continue to engage the community at every stage of the redevelopment through ongoing consultation and updates. “
