The 180-bed project, located in Sydney’s north-west, will create around 200 jobs and is expected to be completed in mid-2017.
SummitCare has been providing care and support to older people and their loved ones throughout New South Wales for the past 50 years.
The Baulkham Hills development marks a new approach to design and technology for the New South Wales care provider.
“Our focus has always been on creating warm, caring and welcoming environments for our residents, but Baulkham Hill will take this to a new level,” says SummitCare (Australia) director Peter Wohl.
“Our approach to the development of this project is radically different – from the design to the use of latest technology. It has been developed based on demand for quality care in the area and what people tell us they would like to see in their home - like pet friendly spaces, a children’s play area and even a purpose-built Men’s Shed.
For the Baulkham Hills development project SummitCare has chosen to work with an award winning design company, CHADA, which has vast international experience in the high-end hotel sector.
“The result will be generous room sizes and a hotel-style environment we’re confident residents and their families will love,” Mr Wohl says.
Technology will play a key role in both the lifestyle and care of residents with wireless connectivity, video conferencing, sensors, alarm call and fall-prevention systems and CCTV security to ensure a safe and connected community.
SummitCare Baulkham Hills will also offer a comprehensive activities program, allied health services, adult day centre and respite care, home care, palliative care and dementia programs, including music and movement.
“As we celebrate our 50th year of operation this year, our entire team and I are excited about seeing this development come to life and being part of the Baulkham Hills community,” says chief executive officer Cynthia Payne.
