A new Link Health and Community centre will open in Oakleigh this week.
The non-profit health services provider will officially open its doors on Wednesday, October 14 and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is expected to attend for the ribbon cutting.
The day will also act as an open day for the community to visit and view the centre, and participate in fun activities.
Health professionals will be available to talk to visitors about available services and assist with exercises and activities such as tai chi.
The new Oakleigh facility will offer a range of health and support services including bulk-billing general practitioners, children’s services, counselling, occupational therapists and dieticians.
The centre will also be equipped with a gymnasium that caters to older people and patients with chronic illness.
Link Health and Community’s CEO Philip Moran said the Oakleigh site was designed to showcase the vast range of services available to the community.
“Our experienced and qualified practitioners add a wealth of expertise to link the people of Oakleigh to better health,” he said.
“We are looking forward to welcoming lots of new faces and explaining to the local community what we have to offer.
“This (Oakleigh) branch further strengthens Link HC’s ability to provide a wide range of accessible, lower cost, bulk-billing and supportive programs and services for the community.”
Link Health and Community will be based at 8 – 10 Johnston St in Oakleigh and can be accessed via Mills Rd and Haughton Rd, and is a short walk from Oakleigh’s public transport hub.
