GMHBA’s first Health Hub has opened in Belmont making it easier for patients to see connected health services in a single location.
Bringing together medical, dental and physiotherapy with an adjoining pharmacy, the multi-disciplinary centre offers convenience for Geelong residents who require a range of health care providers.
Located on High Street in Belmont, the purpose-built facility features modern, contemporary designed consulting rooms and technology. There is also spacious parking and convenient access to nearby shops and public transport.
Services at the Centre are open to all local community members, not just those insured with GMHBA.
Chief Operating Officer (Health & Branch Network) Natalie Lanarus said the aim was to support patients on their health journeys and connect them with specialist services, with a focus on preventive care.
“We are thrilled to open The Hub and excited about the positive impact it will have on the health and well-being of our members and patients,” she said.
“It represents our commitment to delivering exceptional healthcare experiences and aligns with our purpose of supporting communities to live healthier lives.”
The facility is co-located with fellow Geelong not-for-profit Community Care Chemist, which will offer additional benefits to patients including access to medication, diabetes consultations, vaccinations, blood glucose testing and more.
Community Care Chemist Chief Executive Officer Nick Salkeld said the partnership was a great example of two Geelong-based organisations, working collaboratively to ensure timely access to primary health care for local patients.
“The partnership furthers opportunities for collaboration amongst health practitioners, including pharmacists, GPs, dentists and other health practitioners, improving health outcomes for patients in the region, all within the convenience of the health hub,” he said.
