New medical centre and revamped squash courts for Cardiff
The corner of Ada and Macquarie Roads Cardiff is set to receive a facelift shortly designed to create an “integrated one stop health centre”. The existing Cardiff Squash centre at that location was purchased last year by ATUNE Health Centres.
Work will begin with the upgrade of eight of the existing squash courts. Hunter squash centres have taken a bit of a battering in recent years, six courts were demolished at Bel Air in January last year and in May plans were withdrawn to build a $40 million sports centre at Broadmeadow that included courts. The revamp of the Cardiff courts will see major squash events returning to Newcastle this year.
On receipt of council approval for the medical centre development the remaining courts, gym and hydrotherapy pool will be renovated and converted into an integrated medical centre.
ATUNE Managing Director Simon Ashley says the aim is to refresh the body, revive the mind and restore the spirit through collaborative mainstream and complimentary medical care.
This centre will incorporate specialist and general medical practice, allied health services and complimentary medical care. The long term development also includes a hydrotherapy pool, rehabilitation gym, educational facilities, health food store and an organic cafe.
As part of the significant expansion in health service provision ATUNE will be launching an integrated oncology unit (first in Newcastle), integrated mid-wifery unit (first in Australia) and integrated sleep clinic (also a first in Australia) early this year.
