Transformed: Goulburn Valley Health’s new health and wellbeing hub that was formerly Shepparton's historic W. B. Hunter building.
Community Health @ GV Health is located at the corner of Corio St and Edward St.
The development of the iconic 60-year-old building took about six months to complete.
The red brick facade has remained, but the interiors, which include eight clinical rooms and seven therapy sooms, have been renovated for a modern look.
Forty car spaces will be available and clients and community groups can access wi-fi inside the building.
GV Health community and integrated care executive director Leigh Rhode said the newly opened hub would make accessing treatment easier for patients.
The aim of the facility is to co-locate health and wellbeing services into one central location.
‘‘We are pleased to be bringing new life into this historic building and revitalising this part of the central business district,’’ Ms Rhode said.
‘‘The new location also connects GV Health to the health services along Nixon St.’’
GV Health chief executive Dale Fraser said the hospital had been delighted to open the doors to the facility this week.
‘‘Community Health @ GV Health will be delivering health and well being services .
‘‘This innovative facility is an important community resource .
