Just what the doctor ordered: New medical centre for Jandowae

5 December 2017

Concept designs for the proposed Jandowae Medical Centre to be located at 50-52 High Street.

The Jandowae community are set to get a healthy new addition, with Western Downs Regional Council giving their stamp of approval for the development of a dedicated medical centre for residents.

  • Located at 50-52 High Street, Jandowae, the single storey building will cater for up to three doctors, and have a dedicated ambulance parking bay;
  • The proposed plans for the medical centre include six consulting rooms, two treatment rooms, two nurse consulting rooms, reception and waiting area as well as on-site parking; and
  • The currently vacant site, located close to established businesses and community facilities, will be transformed into a modern contemporary medical practice, bringing more job opportunities to our region’s smaller communities.

Council Spokesperson for Economic Development Councillor Donna Ashurst said the challenge of keeping pace with our region’s growing and aging population has driven the need for better regional healthcare services.

“As a Council we want to keep bridging the gap between the services delivered in our larger regional centres and those in our smaller communities,” she said.

“Our approval of this new medical centre in Jandowae is a big step forward in facilitating the delivery of greater choice and improved healthcare to our residents.

“It will not only allow the local GP to practise from a modern facility, but will bring more opportunities for visiting allied health services and provide an incentive for both young and established doctors to come to the Western Downs.”
