Board Bulletin – June 2018

The Board reviewed a Facility Master Plan for capital works that included the Integrated HealthCare Centre (IHCC) and other solar and energy projects currently in scope. The Master Plan includes works planned to upgrade kitchen and laundry facilities in Crossley House and other works to be carried out when funding allows.

A report from the IHCC Project Control Group confirmed that all documentation is expected to be completed within the target timeline and the tender package released in mid-July 2018. Onsite investigation drilling was completed in early June and the demolition permit has been issued.

Work has commenced on the development of a three year Strategic Plan for YDHS with the appointment of Ms Mary Hoodless of Karoo Consulting who will work with stakeholders to facilitate the process.

On 5 June 2018 YDHS Commonwealth Home Support Program was reviewed by an assessor from the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency, who reported to management that the program met all of the Home Care Common Standards. A full report is pending.
