A new $33 million health facility on Hoppers Lane has been unveiled.
The 4600-square-metre Wyndham Medical and Services Centre, which was officially opened last week, offers medical and office space under one roof, including Wyndham’s NDIS headquarters, a women’s clinic and state government offices.
Construction of a 150-place childcare centre behind the new health centre building will begin in July.
The new centre is the brainchild of Techne Development, which has also opened the Wyndham Private Medical Centre and Wyndham Clinic Private Hospital along Hoppers Lane in recent years.
Techne managing director Scott Vickers-Willis said the new facility further consolidates the area, which also includes Werribee Mercy Hospital and St Vincent’s Private Hospital, as the leading healthcare precinct in the west.
“It is certainly clear to us that this region, with its growing number of young, culturally diverse families, is demanding – and deserving of – the best medical and related facilities that we can bring to the area,” he said.
“Wyndham Private Medical Centre has been fantastic and now has 16 GPs, seven days a week, and a big health hub that has over 70 specialists working out of it.
“We also developed Wyndham Clinic Private Hospital, which is a mental health hospital and day surgery that’s also been really popular and going well.”
Mr Vicker-Willis said more was on the horizon, with Techne in talks with prospective tenants about more vacant space along Hoppers Lane.
Werribee MP Tim Pallas welcomed the new facility.
“As we build the infrastructure and services our growing population need, it’s great to have Techne supporting that work and bringing vital assets and jobs to Wyndham,” he said.
