Maari Ma Primary Health Care Building Redevelopment
Maari Ma Health Aboriginal Corporation is about to embark on a new and exciting chapter in its 18 year history with the development of a new Primary Health Care facility in Argent St.
Maari Ma has been delivering its quality primary health care services from the old Silver King building at 428 Argent St for more than 18 years and has this year secured funding from the State and Commonwealth to build a purpose-built primary health care facility across the road on the site of Maari Ma’s Regional Office at 443 Argent St.
While the development takes place, Maari Ma’s corporate and administrative functions will be relocating to the old Skillshare building on the corner of Oxide and Thomas Streets.
Maari Ma CEO, Bob Davis, said importantly there will be no disruption for clients as primary health care services will continue to be delivered at the current site until the new building is completed.
“Maari Ma’s increasing number of primary health care programs has meant that our current building has become no longer suitable for service delivery and we are lucky to be able to develop a new primary health care building without disruption to services.
“Other than seeing a building site opposite the Primary Health Care Service during construction, our clients will not be affected by the relocation of corporate functions.
“We are very fortunate to have an excellent IT network which supports our IT service delivery in Broken Hill, Wilcannia, Menindee and Ivanhoe, so a small move to Thomas St will not be problematic.
“Clients wanting to access the computers and information which are part of the Indigenous Community Links program can continue to do so at the Thomas St building” Mr Davis said.
Construction is expected to commence in June and will continue for more than 12 months.
