Kingston Centre, Cheltenham, VIC

The Kingston Centre is a 315 bed facility specialising in rehabilitation and function restoration for adults of all ages as well as providing aged residential care and aged mental health services. The $250 million redevelopment is being built in stages as the funding is approved. This $48 million individual stage is comprised of 64 sub-acute inpatient beds, ambulatory care services, consulting and community rehabilitation services and a clinical research and education centre.

Single and double rooms with individual ensuites will provide dignity and privacy for clients. The interior design takes cues from nature and hospitality environments while landscaped courtyards and decks provide outlook and activity spaces.

This redevelopment uses a new ‘model of care’, promoting care for the elderly and encourages independence and therapy in a modern and active environment. Heritage buildings located on site will be retained for administration purposes. As part of this major redevelopment, it was proposed to relocate Calvary Health Care Bethlehem to the Kingston site, adding a 30 bed neurological and palliative care unit and a 30 bed residential aged complex care unit.

This project was designed by Silver Thomas Hanley in association with Tectura Architects and was completed in 2012.
