2:00 PM How Barwon North Health’s $33 Million Norlane Centre is Embedding a New Standard for Community based care in Victoria

In January 2020, Barwon Health North opened its $33 million Norlane Centre. This new community based facility aims to ease congestion at the busy Geelong Hospital and blends multiple models of care in a community hospital environment. This session will focus on key design and operational features such as:

  • Victorian first: the establishment of a stand alone  urgent care centre within a metropolitan area
  • How Barwon North Health supports the success of its emergency department through having the right workforce capabilities and direct telehealth links 
  • Next steps: Launching an enhanced  child and family model delivering a hybrid of community health and specialist care, also a first for Victoria
  • Delivering decentralised outpatient services, providing care closer to home for those who most need it
