Barwon Health North officially opened by Minister for Health
Geelong’s growing northern suburbs now have access to more high-quality health services with the opening of the new state-of-the-art Barwon Health North facility.
Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos officially opened the new $33 million flagship health hub in Geelong on 13 February, designed to give local families the world-class health care they deserve – right on their doorstep.
Barwon Health North will offer a walk-in urgent care centre, medical imaging facilities, child and family services, renal dialysis, pathology and specialty clinics – open from 8am to 10pm every day.
Patients will be able to access a range of health services at the walk-in urgent care centre including treatment for sprains, cuts, minor fractures and infections, to help take pressure off University Hospital Geelong’s busy emergency department
The walk-in urgent care centre will be open from 2pm to 10pm every day and provide added flexibility to meet the changing health needs of residents in Corio, Norlane and surrounding communities.
