Work has started on a new $30 million aged care residential facility in Townsville, expected to be completed in early 2019.
PresCare’s 140-bed residential facility will create 130 jobs during construction and 150 jobs in operation.
The facility will have five levels including a rooftop garden and café, as well as a hairdresser. There will be 20 dementia beds available.
With the facility just a few minutes from Townsville Hospital, residents will also have easy access to emergency health services.
PresCare said it looked forward to partnering with Catalyst Health REIT and with Woollam Constructions to get the project completed and operational.
