Onsite GP clinic now open!

Calvary Hyson Apartments - GPs at the onsite clinic

A new GP clinic at Calvary Kooyong retirement living, health and aged care precinct is the latest step to delivering integrated living for residents and patients.

Family Clinics Australia’s clinic provides services to precinct residents and the surrounding Caulfield South and Glen Eira community. The ground-floor clinic will offer GP, pathology and geriatrician services, and a mix of allied health services, commencing with physiotherapy.

Calvary Kooyong General Manager Shannon Thompson said having a primary health clinic located withinthe precinct was always part of the plan and aligns with the needs of the local community and an ageing population. “The aim of Calvary Kooyong has always been to support our residents and patients to live well and in place as they age, or as their care needs change,” Ms Thompson said. “Having the clinic in place is our next step to providing holistic, integrated health and wellbeing services on site for the precinct community.”

“By making patients feel more welcome, we hope this will encourage them to be more proactive in managing their health needs. And, because we are on site, we can always go to them if need be, which is a great additional service we provide,” said practice lead Doctor Bimsara Gurusinghe.

“We are very excited to be working closely with Calvary and providing care to the residents of Hyson Apartments and Huntly Suites,” Dr Gurusinghe said, who will be joined at the practice by experienced GP, Dr Yael Gold.
