Reactivating the Repat Project – 2021 - 2022


Heading 1

The Austco IP Nurse Call System was installed by MCS to the upgraded facilities. Wards 1 & 2 and the Rehabilitation Building have been fully renovated, saving the heritage listed Sun-Rooms where our "Diggers" have been remembered. The 18 bed Neuro-Behavioural unit provides for people whose behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia mean their needs can’t be met in mainstream residential care.

The site now has state of the art nurse call systems throughout. A high level interface with the security systems makes the MCS system the messaging hub for the entire site. 

The Modbury Hospital

Redevelopment Project 2019 – 2021

The development of a four-bed High Dependency unit provides invaluable resources for emergencies.
