Consumers at Macquarie Hospital’s Parkview Unit are enjoying a new gym, courtyard and sensory room after the completion of capital works at the site.
The project, which was made possible with $500,000 from the Mental Health Therapeutic Environments Minor Capital Works Program, was officially capped off with a morning tea.
Chief Executive Deb Willcox joined Macquarie and Mental Health executive staff and consumers for the celebrations, test driving the new gym equipment and sensory room.
“It is really pleasing to see this project complete, I know how hard the staff here at Macquarie and within our mental health team worked to make it possible,” Deb said.
“These improvements are going to have very real impacts for consumers, from the new gym equipment that forms an important part of the Wellbeing Unit to the sensory room which will provide a new therapeutic space.”
