Major construction works in Barwidgee Lodge, Myrtleford are now complete with the construction of 4 private ensuite bathrooms in B wing. Kiewa Valley house has commenced construction of two new private ensuite bathrooms.

Alpine Health received $600,000 from a Commonwealth Multi-Purpose Minor Capital Grant in February 2022, to improve the quality of aged care services through the removal of shared bathrooms in our aged care facilities at Barwidgee Lodge in Myrtleford and Kiewa Valley House in Mount Beauty.

“The project has a major impact on improving the resident care experience and we’d like to thank the Commonwealth for helping us to make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of our residents” said Nick Shaw CEO, Alpine Health.

The Kiewa Valley House bathroom renovations are expected to take approximately 3-4 months.

Strategies are in place to ensure minimal disruption to residents however there may be some dust around and we recommend that people who are immune compromised wear P2/N95 masks when approaching and leaving the Mount Beauty site. The outdoor construction area will be fenced off for health and safety purposes.

Note: The Commonwealth Multi-Purpose Minor Capital Grant Opportunity funding is separate to any funding for the Bright Health Precinct Redevelopment.
