Reactivating the Repat

For information on the Repat Health Precinct drive-through COVID-19 collection centre go to the COVID-19 Clinics and Testing Centres page.

We are Reactivating the Repat and returning the site to a thriving health precinct, including:

  • Step down transitional accommodation to support people with brain injury and spinal cord injury transition from acute rehabilitation back into the community.
  • 78 bed Dementia Care Village in partnership with HammondCare, including 2 x 9 bed Specialist Dementia Care Units and 4 x 15 bed cottages.
  • 18 bed Neurobehavioural Unit for people whose behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia mean their needs can’t be met in mainstream residential care.
  • 12 bed Specialist Advanced Dementia Unit for people living with advanced dementia.
  • 26 bed care transition facility for people transitioning to home or an aged care facility following acute care treatment.
  • 24 bed Brain Injury Rehabilitation and 24 bed Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation facility.
  • Veterans' Wellbeing Centre to provide services and support for veterans and their families.
  • Town square community hub and open outdoor flexible space, including a new wheelchair sports stadium.
  • New home for the Southern Older Persons Community Mental Health Service.
  • New facility for Statewide Eating Disorder Services, including a residential facility.
  • Re-opened the hydrotherapy pool.
  • Secured 40 beds already operating – 20 beds in rehab building (to be relocated to new 26 bed transition care facility) and 20 beds in the VITA Precinct.

We are also ensuring the Repat Chapel, Remembrance Gardens, Museum and SPF Hall will be protected and preserved as community assets for future generations.
