With development approval recently granted for the hydrotherapy pool in our Allied Health precinct on Atze Parade in Nuriootpa, the project team at Barossa Village is currently planning the commencement of works.

“Once complete the pool and its facilities will be a valuable extension to the provision of services to people living in the Barossa,” says Ben Hall, General Manager Service Delivery.

Being built as an addition to the Mary Plush Allied Health Centre, the hydrotherapy pool is partly funded by the Federal Government’s Department of Industry, Innovation and Science through its Building Better Regions Fund.

“This $1.5m project will include a 15m x 5m purpose built hydrotherapy pool, upgraded shower facilities and ‘Changing Place’ compliant change room.”

The gym in the existing facility will also be extended and the project is expected to be completed early 2021.

The planning of the $5.6m expansion of the Residency at Barossa Village is a ‘watch this space’ scenario for exciting updates about this project.

Ben Hall, General Manager Service Delivery, is overseeing this project along with the development of the hydrotherapy pool, and reports that this important project will increase the number of beds by 20%.

“The Residency is currently home to up to 100 residents and with the growing need in our community for residential aged care, the expansion will provide additional capacity including respite services to those who are caring for loved ones at home.”

Funding for this project is supported by the Federal Government’s Department Health, through its Rural, Regional and other Special Needs Building Fund.
