Ramsay Health Care has responded to the growing need for more health care services on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula by opening a new rehabilitation unit at Beleura Private Hospital.
The 30-bed facility has been operating since July this year, but was only formally opened at a ceremony earlier this month.
The development was a joint project between Ramsay and the Australian Unity Healthcare Property Trust. It is estimated to have cost $12 million.
“We are proud to present a terrific new private rehabilitation unit,” hospital chief executive Paul Geddes said.
“The 30-bed unit for inpatients as well as our day only rehabilitation programs are a welcome addition to the acute health care services Beleura Private Hospital already offers to the community.”
The state-of-the-art facility includes a fully equipped gymnasium and hydrotherapy pool, while each room has its own ensuite.
The inpatient service has been in high demand since July, while the response to the opening of the day only programs last month has also been encouraging.
“Beleura’s new rehabilitation service has filled an ever growing demand for health care services on the Mornington Peninsula,” a hospital spokeswoman said.
