New Silverdale Health Hub Opens to Patients

A comprehensive “one stop health shop” for the Rodney community will open its doors to patients and customers on December 17.

The two-floor 3857sqm health campus on Hibiscus Highway in Silverdale will initially offer a range of primary care and diagnostic services. The first healthcare providers opening on the ground floor will be Silverdale Medical (General Practice and Accident & Medical services), Silverdale Clinic Pharmacy, Silverdale Family Dentists, Coast Physiotherapy and Mercy Radiology.

Silverdale Medical GP Warren Groarke said, “Having a range of high-quality healthcare providers in one spot is not only more convenient, but also helps to provide patients with a more integrated healthcare experience. This is very much where the future of primary care lies, so the Silverdale community is set to reap the benefits of this approach.”

Also planned for the ground floor is a specialist suite, which will be used by visiting experts from different fields of medicine for consultations.

The additional space provided by the new facility will also allow Silverdale Medical to expand the range of services offered to its patients into areas such as minor surgery.

“We expect the facility will become a magnet for health care providers and patients given the modern fit out and great location,” said Dr Groarke.

The health campus is jointly owned by GPs from Silverdale Medical and Southern Cross Hospitals, and was developed with a long-term view of healthcare requirements for the region.

The second level of the facility will be leased by Southern Cross Hospitals, though there is no opening date for providing patient services on this floor yet. In 2013, Southern Cross Hospitals will be evaluating the planning for this space and a timeline.
