April 20th, 2022Community access hub opens
Residents in the Macedon Ranges and surrounding communities now have better access to a range of
vital health, family and community services under one roof, after the opening of the Sunbury and
Cobaw Community Health Hub in Kyneton.
Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas has opened the $9.7 million hub, which will
serve as a specialised health and wellbeing precinct for the Macedon Ranges community.
Located next to the Kyneton District Hospital, the Hub provides a purpose-built ‘one‐stop‐shop’, which
brings together a range of health and wellbeing services coordinated by Sunbury and Cobaw
The Hub includes 14 consult rooms for allied health, counselling, paediatric and family services as well
as new e-health technology to provide clients in remote areas with the health care they need, when
they need it.
The site also provides dedicated areas for youth and children’s services and meeting spaces for the
community to use.
The contemporary building was designed with significant input from local community representatives
and reflects the natural and built environments of the Macedon Ranges. Its design also focused on
staff safety and amenity, with secure work and reception spaces plus additional car parking spaces.
