Investment in Aged Care in Hastings

Building of the brand new 120-bed aged care home has commenced. This will be the first stage of The Bays $20 million major redevelopment project.

Expected to open in January 2020, we believe it will be the region’s finest aged care home. The development is being keenly followed by many people, including our residents who will make it their new home.

Site preparations are in progress for the commencement of construction.

“We are ready for this exciting state-of-the-art home to become a reality.” said Adrian Wischer, Chairman, Board of Directors, The Bays Healthcare Group.

Since 2017 The Bays Aged Care has been at full capacity as a highly sought after home for many local ageing residents. The building of the new home will enable more of our community to access our services. Our new home will have the flexibility to provide choice for couples and includes comfortable and spacious private as well as communal dining, lounge areas, terraces, courtyards and outdoor spaces providing a comprehensive range of lifestyle choices.

A commemoration service was held prior to the demolition of the hospital to make way for the redevelopment. The celebration of the Hastings Bush Nursing Hospital was held in October 2017 to share memories and acknowledge the Hastings community. Many residents and local community members who were involved with the Bush Nursing Hospital gathered and shared their memories, including Janice Danaher, President of the Pink Ladies, the family of Robert Haywood, Shirley Davis, Fred Bayne and Dr Graham Cato OAM.

This re-development brings a major investment for the Hastings community and more job opportunities to the area.
