Funding for Mirboo North Hub project

Funding Secured for Study into Health and Wellbeing Hub

Gippsland Medicare Local (GML) is pleased to announce an allocation of $40,000 funding to the Mirboo North & District Community Planning Group.

The funding has been earmarked for a major feasibility study into establishing a new Health and WellBeing Hub for the Mirboo North community.

GML Chair, Dr Nola Maxfield said the funding will also assist in preparing a business case for the Hub project.

“We are very pleased to allocate this funding in support of the Mirboo North & District Community Planning Group’s aim to establish new health and wellbeing and allied health services in Mirboo North,” Dr Maxfield said.

Dr Maxfield will be joined by the Federal Member for McMillan, Hon Russell Broadbent, to present the funding to Dr Margaret Lynn, who is the leader of the Heath & Wellbeing project team at Mirboo North & District Community Planning Group.

“We are expecting significant community benefit not just in terms of the feasibility of the proposed health infrastructure but also the capital required to house the relevant health programs for Mirboo North,” Dr Maxfield said.

A fully-costed concept design for the ‘hub’ will emerge and the study outcomes will also help inform GML on the development potential of other Gippsland community sites.”

The announcement and presentation will take place today Tuesday 17 December at 11.30am at the Mirboo North RSL Conference Room, 1/41 Couper Street, Mirboo North.
