Mossop Constructions + Interiors is in the final stages of completing a long overdue upgrade of the renal dialysis unit at the Mount Gambier and Districts Health Service. The $2.3 million project which is set to officially open in mid-December 2019 will almost double the capacity of the previous facility and provide a new level of care and comfort for renal patients and staff. Mossop’s Regional Manager Craig Williamson says the project has progressed well and included building a new Community Health Centre to allow for the expansion of the renal unit. “It’s always really pleasing to work on projects like this that you know really will make a difference to the lives of the local community,” he says. “Knowing that patients had previously described this facility as the ‘worst’ unit in the state, and seeing what we’re about to deliver, which is a major step up for current and future patients is really inspiring.”
South Australian Health Minister Stephan Wade visted the centre on Monday, November 18 to meet with local clinicians and patients and inspect the development’s progress. The revamped unit will now offer six spacious treatment bays, improved patient space and privacy and an office area. As a fourth-generation South Australian family business, we have a tangible commitment to supporting regional SA with a full office and 10 staff in Mount Gambier. Along with the Mount Gambier Hospital project in the South East, Mossop’s is also currently working on the Boandik Lodge Hydrotherapy Pool and the OTR at Stawell. Recently completed work in the region includes the Mount Gambier Prison, the Nhill Law Court upgrade, the Robe Medical Centre and the Portland Library.
