Camperdown aged care facility

Location 9 Robinson Street, Camperdown, Victoria, 3260, Australia

The Victorian Government is investing $39.6 million to build a new 36-bed, two-storey aged care facility in Camperdown.

Each resident in the new facility will have a single bedroom with a private ensuite, promoting dignity, privacy and independence.

Based around the concept of ‘small households’, the facility will include dedicated kitchen, dining, lounge and break-out sitting areas. The new facility replaces the ageing Merindah Lodge at Camperdown Hospital and will be operated by South West Healthcare.

The new facility has features to support residents’ interaction with the community. It will offer outdoor spaces to promote physical and mental wellbeing.

Early works began in November 2022. The new facility is due for completion in 2025.

The project is part of the Rural and Regional Public Sector Residential Aged Care Services Revitalisation Strategy. The strategy aims to progressively replace dated public sector facilities with purpose-built facilities. These facilities will better meet community expectations and enable contemporary models of aged care.

The project will deliver:

  • a new 36-bed residential aged care facility
  • single rooms with private ensuites
  • dedicated kitchen, dining, lounge and break-out sitting areas
  • features to support residents’ interaction with the community
  • outdoor spaces to promote physical and mental wellbeing.

The new Camperdown aged care facility aims to achieve the following benefits:

Specialist care

The 36-bed residential aged care facility will improve access to high-quality facilities and care. It will meet a range of complex needs as residents’ healthcare needs increase, including a purpose built facility for residents with dementia.

A home-like environment

Residents will have improved privacy and independence with single rooms and ensuites. A ‘small households’ approach will provide residents with access to dedicated kitchen, dining, lounge and break-out sitting areas.

Safe living and working conditions

The new facility will benefit both staff and residents with better and safer living and working conditions.

Close to home

Greater access to high-quality care in Camperdown means residents won’t have to move away to access care. They will be able to remain close to their support, family and community networks.

New outdoor areas

Residents will have access to new outdoor spaces. This will promote physical and mental wellbeing as well as encourage increased social interaction.

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority in partnership with:

  • South West Healthcare
  • ClarkeHopkinsClarke (architect)
  • Nicholson Construction
