Glenorchy Integrated Care Centre
DesignInc provided design and health planning services for Glenorchy Integrated Care Centre, working with Liminal Architecture. Fundamentally, the planning supports implementation of a contemporary model of community-based health care, creating a vital link between acute level and primary level care. The new facility takes pressure off hospital-based acute services by providing care, responsive to needs of patients with multiple conditions associated with chronic disease and ageing. The Glenorchy community benefits from improved access and health care delivered closer to the home. Broader health system benefits include a team-based work environment, reduced demand on emergency services and cost savings.
